Bottle (n. cat. 74533)


A vertical ellipsoidal body  with a long neck, a flat bottom with handles placed at the maximum diameter. What catches the eye is a valuable production where the red slip and the wanted bottle form in an inaccurate realisation in which the lack of attention during the baking resulted in asymmetrical shape and blackened colouring.
