34. Canakkale Horse Shaped Cup – 19th/20th

Canakkale 19th - Private Collection Athens Greece

Horse-shaped ceramic cup from Canakkale Turkey (late 19th or early 20th century). Red earthenware and a brown body sporadically receiving splashes of green and white. The bridles are folded on the saddle and a large rosette rests on the chest. A hole on the tail is for filling and a small opening on the mouth for pouring out the contents. These beautiful clay objects in the form of horses, lions, camels and other animals belong to the most desirable items for many collectors of this kind of pottery.
