This Roman style clay pitcher, also called a flagon was used to hold drinkable liquids such as wine, beer, or water. Pitchers such as this have been found in ancient sites in the Holy Land. This would have been in use during the time of the Bible. Each reproduction is slightly different and unique because each is handmade in the Holy Land just as the original pitcher was handmade 2000 years ago. The photo is representative but not exact. This style of pitcher has a narrow neck and spout with one handle. The narrow neck was to keep the flavor of the liquid from dispersing too quickly and also to keep dust and insects out of the liquid.
This replica of a Roman clay pitcher found in the Holy Land stands about 6 inches high.
