    Hi all

    Does anyone have any idea what this might be? I've been trying to research it but can't identify. There are faces at the sides, the bottom and top are open so not a vase or a vessel that can hold a liquid. the base has a cut out pattern but might be just that or for fitting onto something? Measures 6" high and weighs 449g. I think the faces look Japanese. Any assistance would be appreciated.

      possibly a cemetery vase; the bottom would interlock to attach the vase to the grave marker...

      Many thanks for replying TallCakes, much appreciated. I've had a look but can't find anything similar? I'll keep trying but thanks again.
