POTTERY WINE JUG WITH A LONG SPOUT AND A STRAINER
HOLY LAND, Iron Age, Israelite, 1200 – 900 BC

Time of the Kings of ancient Israel

Beautifully made in a globular body with long spout and a strainer

Very little is known about vessels used for drinking beer, those we know of are generally characterised by a spout and a strainer. Since the remains of straw and chaff usually floated along the surface of the beer, it was necessary to strain the liquid before drinking it.

Dimensions:
Length: 18 cm
Height: 13 cm
Height on stand: 24 cm

Condition: Part of the spout has been professionally restored otherwise intact

Found in Hebron south of Jerusalem, Israel
