Physical Description

Wheelmade, circular lamp. Very large, handmade, applied nozzle. Nozzle is broad and long, tapering at the end to a rounded tip with a small, circular wick hole. The nozzle is deeper than the body of the lamp, so the lamp cannot sit squarely. Globular body. Large central filling hole with a low neck. Broken lug(?) handle. Raised, slightly concave base. Glazed all over.
