Artist G. E. Ohr incised signature with faux screw head on base. 

George E. Ohr, called “The Mad Potter of Biloxi”, is often considered the first true Art Potter of the early 20th Century in the USA. These “Puzzle Mugs”, which were a frequent form he loved to make, were a mysterious wonder as you could sip a liquid out of them despite their having holes in the walls of the mug. Ohr would astound his audiences with these forms, which were quickly purchased at the various fairs he would attend.
