The piece depicts a mother giraffe, with calf looking up to its parent. The mother seems to be comforting its young child. The two are conjoined, creating a unique shape. The result is that the vase focuses on form, rather than on the detailed features of a giraffe. Along these lines, there are none of the famous giraffe spots. Instead, a smooth black matte glaze covers the long neck, mane, horns, and ears of this majestic animal. Overall, this is a delightful piece for any pottery collector and animal lover. This American vase dates to c. 1940-50 and comes from the Shawnee factory in Zanesville, Ohio, which stopped production in 1961.
