With Halloween coming, I though this might be of interest. My brother and I dug this up while digging for bottles about 40 years ago. Creepy face on one side and a heart on the other. We sent pics to the different museums and Historical Societies in our area. We even sent it to the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC. to see if it was of Lenni Lenape Origin. No Luck . No one has a clue as to what it was or its purpose. It's made of fired clay ,and I now think it might be folk art some local brick worker made in the late 1800's .Kreisher Brickworks ,on Staten Island, was not far from where we found this. It's Just Weird.
