This is a replica of a small cooking pot with 2 handles. It is made from native clay in the Holy Land. It could have been used to heat small amounts of liquids over the hearth or an outdoor fire. This is a sample shown. There are many variations in the height, width and handle placement of these jars. Each is made individually by hand today by a potter in the Holy Land just as they were made thousands of years ago. Jars similar to these have been found in archaelogical finds throughout Israel. There is a small variation in the size and shape of each jar as compared to the picture. Each is a unique piece of clay pottery. The size ranges from 4.5 inches to 6 inches depending on how much clay the pottery picked up to make the pot. As each is made by hand, there is no 2two alike.
These pottery pieces are not glazed. While the ancients used them as is, it is not recommended today that liquids be placed in them for consumption as they are porous. They may be used after cleaning with water for storage of grains.
