This pottery is in very good condition, with minor surface wear, and small slip-pops. Signed by the artist on the bottom. Acquired from a private collection in Arizona. The owner inherited this item from her father, who collected over the past twenty years. The wedding vase symbolizes the sanctity of marriage in the ceremony. One spout on the wedding vase represents the husband; the other, the wife. The handle in the middle of a wedding vase represents the unity that a husband and wife will achieve when they come together on their wedding day. The space between the handle and the two spouts is a representation of the couples circle in life.
