Figural bottles such as this one are relatively rare in Salem pottery. In its subject and mottled green and brown glazes, it is reminiscent of late-eighteenth-century products of the English manufacturers Whieldon and Wedgwood. It is among the earliest and finest of the known American squirrel bottles.
