I have 2 similar Bottles / Vases They both have Corks in them One of them says on the cork "Ambassador Scotch Whisky" the other does not say anything. They are each 10 inches high. They both have the same mark on the bottom
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Searching for this crown/shield/wreath mark led me to this website, which didn't completely identify the maker but suggests whoever was making it made lots of other forms; someone on this had these same vessels but with a different label (https://www.figurines-sculpture.com/italian-ceramic-clown-figurine-pottery-mark-with-shield-wreath-and-crown-in-a-circle.html)
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
A pair of ceramic cherub-applied vessels
Possibly made in Italy, Used to contain Ambassador Scotch Whisky, late 19th Century
Each vessel with applied putti and floral elements, each with impressed shield, wreath and crown mark below, one with lid reading "Ambassador Scotch Whisky"
each 10 inches high
CONDITION: appear to be in good condition
$125-175 for the pair*
