Monumental Deco Jar

A huge Flambe lidded jar by Rörstrand from the 1930s, 21 inches tall. The piece is marked as unique and I can tell from the decoration that it was commissioned by the Swedish Post Office. There are the trumpets that are a familiar logo to anyone who has received as many packages from Sweden as I have! Every scene depicts people holding envelopes and airplanes, so I'm thinking this piece was made to celebrate the start of Swedish air mail in the 1930s.
