I started encountering these great looking old clay ocarina (Italian for ''little goose'') at flea markets on occasion, and had to snatch one up; I think they are just great little objects, and pretty fun to play, too! They were made in various sizes; this is a smallish one, made in Vienna, Austria, earlyish 20th century I believe. It is a 10 hole Transverse, or "Sweet potato" style ocarina (eight finger holes on the face and two on the back), to be held with two hands horizontally to play.
Stamped ''EWA'' and "Made in'Vienna, Austria''on the front corner, Very good condition, with some wear to the black paint and a few tiny chips but looks and plays great. 4" long x 2 1/2" tall x 1" deep.
