Max,

Was your hand by the same maker? So are you not going for this one as it is not a complete set :?:

Difficult to tell from the pictures, of course to really tell one also needs a picture of the base.

I presume as it has a lid it is a decanter or cream container. No one any ideas on maker? :P

I think the design is traditional.

In Amsterdam we make them in pottery as well, and sell them to tourists.
Does that say something about us, or about the tourists?!

No. :)

But the thread title does... were it titties, would one need to be squeamish. One day penii will be regarded as a natural part of homo-sapiens.
