This is just one example of an Dogon or African medicine pot. Sometimes they are just called Kuduo (container) or Yoruba (ritual or ceremonial vessel). The figures seem to be wearing horse masks? I cannot find any particular country to lead you to by their appearance, but the most similar examples of work have been from the west....Nigeria, Ghana, Mali, Burkina Faso, etc. I love figural art.
Thank you so much Molly.You seem to be right on with your response. I guess I need to study up on African figural art.
This antique brass flower pot from India is the closest example I could find to yours. That extra wide rim seems specific to flowers, but you don't see them THAT wide, especially when it has a small stem and base.
Here is another type just for flowers.
Wonderful! I was thinking it may be from India. It just had that look to it. :)
Thanks so much, Bill
Hi again Molly,
This engraving on the vase reminded me of a mosque window. What do you think?
Oh, yes, that is very nice. I did not even know they were engraved. Good guess.
It was in bidorbuy with a very inflated price tag. I was able to determine it was a vessel for storing gold powder. It was made by the Asanti tribe probably early 1900's.
