    Hi, I got this vase at a sale. It is Maiolica which is what Majolica was called when it was made in Italy. I don't know if these are cherubs, angels or putti and I was wondering what the 1710 . I believe they didn't use Italy in the 1700's so it isn't the year. There is some crazing (more on the inside) and the paint has chips on the higher points and at the bottom rim. If anyone has information about this vase any aid would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Michelle

      The "1710" might be an import mark?
      I learned this a.m. that cherubs are biblical. Putti (which is plural, putto is singular,) are secular. So it may all come down to what the artist was trying to depict as in whether he or she was secular or wanting to convey a religious theme? Or, in the alternative just had a fascination with how stinking cute and adorable cherubs are!
