An urn-shaped vase with masks on either side; not signed.

The vase is decorated in blue with oakleafs. In cartouches two representations: Venus and Adonis with two dogs on one side and a Venus shell fountain with three putti on the other.
The depiction of Venus and Adonis is derived from “Metamorphosis” by Ovid.
