Description
With double holes looking like wide round eyes and a plump, tapering body, this delightful little vessel resembles an owl. What might it originally have contained to evoke the presence of a night bird? A Child"s Rattle, A stimulant to keep one alert? A potion to help conquer insomnia? After all these centuries, the little bird keeps that information secret; only however, its considerable charm is very much in evidence. - (P.0453)
