About Woodpecker and Ivy
Shards of this pattern were found in the Millersburg diggings, and it is a beautiful realistic design on a 6″ vase. The top is somewhat raggedly sawtooth (the teeth are not all the same height). The pattern consists of some small Ivy type leaves at the top of the vase, with bark-like designs going from the base up the side to the Ivy, and a vertical bird hugging the side with its beak poking into a branch. They are highly collectible and seldom seen, currently only reported in marigold and vaseline.
