Any info on this antique?

Well, I found this one in during one of those old club member collection fire sale donation thingys.  It looked old, so I snatched it up.

Wow!  I have no info, but I like this pot.  Great find!  (Could the previous owner tell you anything meaningful about it?)

I'm pretty sure this ended up at a club sale due to the death of a long time hobbiest.  I didn't get it locally, so I'm really not sure of the whole story.

I should mention that the flowers are in-laid glass, not painted on

Yep - that's a beauty. A bit deep - but they were back then.
