It ialso marked in silver colored paint "Pauline-Thanks! Greg Shooner 6/30" and as such this is a presentation piece from the artist to Pauline. The flask which has a flat round base which extends slightly beyond the straight rising sides is short and has a shoulder supporting a short neck with a flared spout or opening on top. The piece has a brown colored appearance with black spots throughout indicative of manganese glazing.
