It is made as a 'ritual pot' and considered an auspicious object but can be used as a flower vase. It is called a Kalash or Kalasha. It is heavy and can hold a lot of flowers. The height is 5 inches. The width is 5.5". It has a 5 cup capacity. I have had it 'forever', carried it back to the USA in the 1970's in my hand luggage. ~ Lovely heavy piece with substance (a heavy gauge).
