    Elaine...could you share a little more about the piece?

    A few more pics would be helpful, as well as dimensions, how & where acquired, etc.

    Thanks for showing this...and welcome!

    I agree we could use more pictures, inc the bottom. Looks like it's in a store.

    At first glance, it does not appear to me to be characteristic of any specific pottery tradition.

    Provencal French, and I can't recall the maker. They use Lascaux cave painting images.

    Nice. Where in the world are you, or did you find it, Elaine?
    There used to be several studios in and around Montignac, Dordogne, where Lascaux inspired pottery was made. There probably still are.

    The legs look a bit on the heavy side for Lascaux style, imo. Maybe this was inspired by other pre-historic cave/rock art? There are many sites dotted around Europe and North Africa.

    Could even be inspired by another culture or region altogether, although the type of intentionally rough ceramic looks like that of some Montignac studios.

    My geography head has gone to sleep. I was thinking of someone like Cerabel Sarlat or one of those potters, and shifted them to Provence. So yes to Montignac or thereabouts.

    Next door, not much of a culture shock, I think.:playful:
