Albarello

Description (Brief)
This albarello has a predominantly white glazed background with bands of crosshatching at each shoulder. At the waist is a band of spiral vines. George Urdang, co-author of the Squibb Ancient Pharmacy Catalogue believed the spiral designed suggests this jar came from Florence.
