The Clay Pot

This clay pot is either a lovely reproduction or a valuable antique.  It belongs to an indigent Buddhist meditation and tea master in Novi Gradiska, Croatia who has entrusted me with its sale. As you can see the lip is chipped.  It is about 6" x 6".  He got it from someone who got it from someone in Switzerland.  It is gorgeous - unique - sophisticated in pottery craftsmanship, "primitive" in design.  Perhaps African, or African influenced.  Mesopotamian valley?
