This specific form of vessel is sometimes referred to as a “baby feeder” because the constricted spout could function well for that purpose. The type of clay and the simple umber banded decorations suggest it wasmade either on the island of Cyprus or in the Levant (Lebanon, Palestine, Syria) sometime in the late Classical to Hellenistic periods, circa 400 to 100 BCE. Good condition. See Photos.
