This jug with a turquoise glaze is slender and delicately modelled, and the ceramist has also given great detail to the handle, modelling a beautiful little bird with rounded forms, which is the best way of crowning this sinuous handle. This type of ceramic vessel was mainly used for water or wine, and it is very common for them to have one or even two handles.
