3032 A Very Large Wine Jug with a Tasting Stopper
This large Presentation Jug has a comfortable capacity of 3 bottles. It was presented to Hugh Johnson in Coimbra (Portugal). On one side is etched a basket of foliage and flowers (symbolic of hospitality), while on the other side is the coat of arms of the Duke of Coimbra within crossed palm leaves.
The jug has a plain loop handle, and a 'tasting stopper' - that is a loose-fitting stopper with a hollow 'peg' enabling a small volume to be tasted prior to pouring the wine.
