Pottery Antique Figural Cup
Six three dimensional faces adorn the rim of this Antique Black Pottery Cup. This cup comes from South America. The potter made it in the early 20th century. He of she used Black clay. Then the potter attached the molded faces to the top and incised the sides with geometric designs. On the bottom, he or she created a 0.75″ rim so the bottom is indented. It looks like the potter applied a slip to both the outside and inside that give it a polished look.
This cup stands about 4″ tall. The top opening measures about 3.5″ in diameter. The bottom measurement is 2.5″ in diameter. It remains in very good condition.
