    I found this unusual ceramic container at a flea market, and can't for the life of me identify it. It looks like it says Fleen on the bottom, but the symbol is unfamiliar. Even the style is unidentifiable.

    I'm not certain of the age, and I don't know if this is studio pottery or an actual antique or artifact.

    It stands at 8.5" and is 7" wide. The bottom where the signature is is recessed, and the clay appears to be a white clay.

    Can anyone help me? Thanks so much!!

      Looking at the thumbnail on a small notebook, it looks like a product logo:

      Flo ** Go

      across a simple decoration.

      At 100% I see a lighted doorway with a small awning above the text "A Fleeno"

      At about half max zoom, the markings on the left look like a person's legs standing in the open legs of another person who is seated on a bench or hitching rail. On the far right, the legs of two people.

      At maximum zoom it looks like there is faint lettering on the lower rim of the base? Maybe some glaze left in depressions?

      It's a really interesting piece. The design makes me think it was either a commemorative bottle alcoholic beverage of some kind or a root beer canteen. A real long shot is a container for liquid medicine.
