Brought this home from the TS. The bottom was covered in felt and I was not able to remove it to take a peek. Was hoping it would be signed Cabat, lol, but of course it was unsigned. It is 5 1/4 inches in height, roughly the size of a cantaloupe. Any thoughts on age, origin and description would be great. Thanks! :-x

Still looking. :-( I found many Chinese pieces described as Han Dynasty that have a similar glaze and bottom but nothing close to the form of our piece. The shape is rather odd. Not sure what it would be used for. maybe a seed pot?
We would like to list it but have no clue as how to describe it. Any thoughts or ideas would really be appreciated. :-x

That was a well needed laugh! Felt very alone for a while there. Consider yourself forgiven. :-D
Now, any other thoughts on our elephant dropping? ]

Thank potterypeddling! Ha ha--I thought it was the absolute ugliest thing I had ever seen in my life-but it might be great art for all I know! lol

Lol, ya never know. Sometimes ugly sells. We will cross our fingers when we list it. ] Too bad it is not signed by a known artist. A few examples of ugly that sells if anyone would like to see. ;-) Thanks again everyone!

Check out the obscure mark on this monstrosity, lol. It could be easily overlooked at first glance, that is if someone even bothered to pick it up and take a look at say a flea market or garage sale.
