Description This type of jug was used to hold wine or water at the dinner table. Made of free-blown glass, this example is composed of a green-toned, slightly iridescent glass and is decorated with a thread around the neck and another around the mouth, made by trailing molten glass around the vessel when it was still hot.
The top tip of the handle was broken where it joins to the rim of the vessel. The fragments were reattached using Paraloid B-72.
