A really large and very fine terracotta jug said to have been found near Carthage.

Simple incised decoration and altogether a gracious and pretty imposing piece of ancient pottery.

Rolf from Helios Gallery (who I recommend!) had one some time back and thought that this represented a glass bottle within a wicker basket. The base is in fact, interestingly, indented like blown glass.

Intact and all in all in very fine condition. 

262 mm....that's 10.5 inches!

But is it essentially Roman or Greek? Must be Roman because of the shape of the glass bottle it mimics. So likely to be around 2nd century.

From a UK collection.
