    I believe this to be a George Jones Picket Fence Majolica Cheese Dome. Couple of things draw some concern here for me.
    1. The picket fence aspect is not prominent here. This one seems to be almost covered over on the dome and somewhat prevalent on the base part.
    2. Painting aspect seems to be rather crude and not precise. Paint almost seems to be drippy if that's a characteristic.
    3. There is not any type of "makers marks" here with this one. There are a couple areas on base where it seems as if there was a paint over for some reason....
    4. This piece is supper glossy in and out. Blue bottom paint aspect seems to be not a consistent color, but rather a hurried incomplete brushing........

    All this being said. The handle seems to be correct. I do believe it to be old. Maybe this was a hijacked vessel, that some inexperinced artist attempted to produce something.......

    And maybe all of this is for not and it is a GJ Majolica piece, all be it a crude one......Please say it is so...Thank you

    BTW. I have had this piece for 40 years and just dusted it off. One of my very first finds I still have.......ty
