Description

Red earthenware jardinière streaked with cream slip/glaze and brownish glaze.

Red earthenware, thrown, and decorated with cream and brownish drip glazes on the exterior, and glazed on the interior. Bulbous ovoid body standing on a flat base which has four small circular spur marks at intervals near the edge. The shoulders contract into a very short neck, above which the sides curve outwards and upwards into a broad cup-shaped mouth with a wavy edge. The streaks of cream slip/glaze begin a little below the rim and end in an irregular line several centimeters above the base.
