The sprinkler has a ring foot and is decorated underglaze in yellow, turquoise, cobalt blue and brownish red with black outlining. Around the body medallions with flowers exist. The upper section of the neck was covered with a silver or metal cap, now missing. Excellent sample from Kütahya’s great pottery tradition.
