A remarkable redware flask in the form of a woman wearing a long gown with a very open ruffled bodice that leaves little to the imagination. Folksy, somewhat risque and definitely unique, this unusual figure is difficult to date or place but is probably late eighteenth or early nineteenth century and is either Continental or from the American south where it was part of a collection. An amazing suvivor with only two or three minor chips.
