    Found in a second-hand store in Montreal. This vessel went through intensive, professional, repair, as you can see. Looks like a museum piece. Should be fairly easy to identify its origin but I have not succeeded yet. I love it and cherish it and I am happy to share with you. Just love this web site.

      This is Mexican pottery from San Luis Potosi. This form is generally referred to as a Huastecan water jug. It dates ca. late 1890's/early 1900's.

      So many thanks, Canyon Road. I will now learn more about the people who made this type of pottery. This is great fun! I really appreciate your interest in sharing knowledge.

      Thanks Racer4four and you all!. Sorry missed your loves. Not yet familiar with the site!

      Beware "original early Amer. Indian" artifacts that appear turned on a potters wheel.
    5. CanyonRoad, 7 years ago
      True. Native American potters never used a potter's wheel, and never glazed their pottery, but early Mexican potters did, as well as most other cultures around the world.
    6. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      Yeah, Africans (other than Egyptians , Amer. Indians & Eskimos never invented the wheel & still don't know how to use it.

      Hi all ! Under which category would you show this item ? Learning with the pros !
    8. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      You can put it under electronics, tools, furniture or whatever you want. Staff will change it anyway! LOL

      One of my favourites, is to pick a number, say 7, and start an automatic slow scroll on the categories list, close my eyes, count to 7 & clk.. System works well on secondary category as well.
    10. Denise72 Denise72, 7 years ago
      I got it !
    11. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      You're earning! To add a little variety for the count number, I sometimes roll the dice or take a wild toss at the dart board.

      That is too true, blunderbuss. I generally take a shot at the category, then inevitably get the email saying my piece has been recategorized, lol. ;)
