Maiolica Water Stoup 

Spanish or Italian, c.1725

Bright, cheerful, charming -- will liven up any wall. The painting is truly naïve but confident. What a lot of putti! Water stoups were hung near the front door so that guests could bless themselves on entering. Today, you can hang it wherever it'll cheer you up the most!
