The muted earth tones of this 8 1/4" (including the little feet) pot will blend harmoniously with any décor. Perhaps it could hold combs or hairbrushes? kitchen utensils? Whatever pleases you will certainly be enhanced with this handmade pot. It stands on the four little feet, and has applied pottery handles and a lid that matches. It measures 5" across the round top including those handles, and is 3 3/4" by 5 1/4" on the bottom (oval-shaped bottom). It is signed on the bottom "Cramer". We have several pieces by this artist. Look for all of them! This pot is functional for display and should not be used for food.
