This is the strangest "flower pot" I've seen to date. I thought at first it was the bottom half of something, but there is no edge on which to place a lid. Then I thought it was something to cook in, but there is no evidence of that ever having happened. Made of terracotta/earthenware, I think. Measures 9.5 inches across and stands 5 inches high.
Is it a garden piece? I dunno. Images searches didn't turn up anything.
Thanks to anyone who knows something!
I added a close up photo of the surface - maybe it helps.
P.S. I heard back from an archaeological museum in Nijmegen - nobody there knows what this is or how old it is. Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands, so I thought I'd have a shot at finding out what this bowl is...but, nope! I emailed another Dutch archaeological website, so maybe they know something:
