This superb 19th Century French conscience water vessel has six handles that were used for threading through rope for carrying. Originally it probably had yellow glaze, then at some point in history tulips were painted onto the balloon shaped side. There are some cracks to the spout which add to the character of this unique piece.
Condition and wear consistent with age and use.
