Description

Earthenware, with incised and applied decoration, coated in a brown glazed painted with multiple colours

Earthenware, mould made, incised and with applied decoration, coated in a brown glaze painted with blue, green, yellow, brown and red
Shape: hollow horse figure with collared legs, applied decoration forms mane, ears, eyes, rosette saddle and reins. A circular spout is present on the rear right flank, and another at the animal’s mouth, both indicative of the use of this object as a pouring vessel.

The mane is incised with horizontal lines and painted with blue and brown. The applied reins and saddle are painted predominantly yellow and green; a yellow circle on one flank is matched on the opposite side with a circular spout. Glaze runs over the lower legs and feet, terminating unevenly.
Interior: undecorated
