Object Detail

This jug is one of the more elaborate vessels recovered from the moat during archaeological excavations at Caerlaverock Castle 1955-1966. It has a bridge-spout with one main handle and a pair of smaller side handles. It has applied strips, scales and pellets and comb decoration with traces of a honey and light green glaze. The stamped roundels probably imitate coins. High quality jugs like this would have been used for serving liquids at a high status table. Probably dating from about 1300.
