Pretty Puzzle Bowl or Basket

 

 

A 19th Century faience puzzle basket with scrolling serpent handles. The central decoration is a putto riding a dolphin. Probably Italian c.1840

 

 

26.5mm (10 inches) wide.



A most unusual shape for a "puzzle jug".

Can you drink out of it without spilling the contents?
