    What's it made of? It's big at 23". Maybe a cane or umbrella stand?

    Looks cold-painted. That means the finish is fragile and could easily be washed off.

    We really do need to see the bottom. Sometimes you can tell if the owner drilled the hole to make it into a lamp or maybe it came with the hole because it used to be a lamp. I can't imagine why a large vase would have a drain hole--it's not a planter.

    Cold painted means that someone took the finished vase and painted the scene on it using ordinary paints.

    Frequently the colors or designs on vases are applied using materials that are made permanent by firing (baking) them in a kiln. No firing is involved in cold-painting, which is why it is called "cold".

    Cold color designs are not secure. They just sit on the surface and can easily be damaged.
