Jug

M8806
Tall, slender pitcher, of the shape known as the Etruscan "Schnabelkanne" because of its beak-shaped spout, used as part of the Archaic and Classical wine service, and widely exported, with many examples in Gaul as well as the Mediterranean. The surface of the jug preserves evidence of the woven cloth in which it was wrapped or against which it rested. The textile, with an open weave, preserves mineralised textile (that is, textile replaced by rust) where the handle meets the body of the vessel, and also impressions of woven cloth in rust on the body.
