Vessels such as this were produced by applying a glaze to the juglet prior to firing thus complicating the firing process and increasing the possibility of errors in the finished product. This, in addition to the relative rarity with which such wares were produced, as well as their immense aesthetic appeal, contributed to their status as a luxury item during the Herodian period.
