      It is an 19th or early 20th-century cold-creme pot with lid. I'm not familiar with this lid, but because it does not specify a brand, it was probably a standard lid made for multiple companies as could be ordered through a catalog.
      The lid itself is likely later 19th century and made from a coloured engraving transferred to the unglazed lid before firing.
      The scene may come from a play, a book, or another popular source. It may also have more meaning to it than we understand.

      Looks like the Pope and John Bull (Great Britain) are playing chess and the Pope isn't as good as he thinks he is.
