Bronze Vessel for Measuring Liquids

Post  Admin on Tue Feb 23, 2010 9:50 am


The vessel made of bronze was used to measure liquids. It has a round base and a handle in the figure of a bird with a duck bill. It is decorated with geometric ornaments made by casting.

The vessel's body is round and squat in the figure of a traditional olla jar, a funnel-mouthed vessel. The vessel has traces of ridges. These were probably marks for measurement.
