It is very delicate...porcelain, about 1/16th of an inch thick. It was made starting with a slab base...a slab cylinder placed on that and attached, then folded at the shoulder. This makes 2/3rds of the height. "Leaves" were slab constructed and attached to the base and to themselves. Little "stems" were added for handles as well as "stems" on the leaves. My guess is that it has been stained and then glazed...fired to ^6. The entire piece is 2 1/4" tall, 2 3/4" wide and 2 1/8".
