Earthenware handled jar, Spanish colonial, 1600s-1700s. 5 lb 2-1/2 oz, 12-1/4" tall and 7" in diameter. Tall vase with flat bottom and short neck below the rim (unlike the more typical tinajas) in orange clay with off-white encrustation on surfaces where the greenish glaze has eroded away (only traces remaining), one small handle near top, scarce as perfectly intact, important as an historical artifact from the early Spanish presence in Florida. Found in the vicinity of Crystal River on the west coast of Florida.
