Rather large red earthenware aquamanile in the
shape of a curious animal resembling a
piglet. The spout shaped as his round
flattened snout, the head with double circled
appliqued eyes and pointed ears. The ovoid
body surmounted by a tall everted neck
leading to a large opening to which a
cordoned bent handle is attached. Four legs
carefully sculpted support the vessel, where a
small curly tail is attached to the back.
Water containers such as this one, with a
truncated upright opening are usually associated
with the Amlash period and similar examples can
be seen in the A.M Sackler Collection of Near
Eastern Art in Washington (coll. no. S1987.950).
