Back in the 1960's, my father and I were fishing from our boat, "The Black Jack", up on "The Old River", in the California Delta, near Tracy, and the Island that he was raised on. While casting toward the levee shore, we(I) :^) got tangled in some tree branches, so my father ran the boat close, so he could untangle the line. When we got there, he noticed some pottery sticking out of the mud levee, so he tied the boat to the tree, jumped to the levee, and dug out the pottery, and pulled out a vase, I still have the vase now!
It had a large 3/4"x 1/2" chip off the top, otherwise perfect. Over the years, it was broke, and my father glued it back together best he could. This is that vase.
The Levee that it came from was put there in the late 1800's to early 1900's. I don't know if it was there since then, but it was buried down the levee, and stuck deep. It's 6 3/4" tall and 3 3/8" at widest, has a 4" neck and 3/4" across the top, the base is 2 1/8" across.
Thanks for looking! :^)
