Aquamaniles

Aquamanile, literally meaning "water hand", are horizontal jugs. They often are in the shape of various animals and humans, and were first used for liturgical purposes. Later, they found there way in to the middle class, where they were used for such things as the washing of ones hands at feast tables.

Ours recreate those found in English and Italian cultures, and are patterned after existing models.
