Description

This lovely lady is wearing a turban and a jeweled bindi. Her eyes are outlined in black and her full lips are lightly rouged. The potter hand painted this terra cotta piece with taupe, blues and black against the milky white slip, which was applied more lightly on her face to simulate skin tones.
This piece reminds us of the Sicilian Moorish heads, but they of course are maiolica in very bright colors.

This vase or pot is 3 inches tall with a 2 inch diameter base. The opening at the top of the head is about 1 3/4 inches across. She's in excellent condition; what looks like a white patch or chip on the front is merely a glaze skip. There is a small chip on the underside of the base, unseen until she is turned over. 

This head vase is lovely wherever it's placed.
