Jug

Description
This jug is a type of pottery which is most commonly a red colour. The black colour of this jug was a deliberate effect achieved by controlling the oxygen supply during firing. It was made during the Cypriot Bronze Age and is still covered in traces of mud which have not been cleaned since it was excavated. This was part of a collection belonging to a local amateur archaeology couple but unfortunately they did not record from where they acquired the objects in their collection.
