MOCHE DOUBLE LOBED BAT whistling VESSEL. Ca. 450 - 800 A.D. Ex Robert Sheridan collection. 7 inches tall by 7 inches long. Of chocolate and cream. Front lobe is a bat with large extended wings. Facial features of teeth, eyes and nose in relief. Large flared ears. Having legs and feet in relief and folded against body. Bat body having three horizontal brown stripes. A small protruding hollow bulb on middle of back creates whistling sound when air is blown into spout and perhaps when water is poured from spout.

A strap handle connects the two lobes on top with a hollow cross over tube connecting both lobes near the base. This vessel is in excellent condition.
