Notes : Larger ceramic or earthenware versions of these vessels were for utilitarian day to day use. whereas the glass versions such as this example were generally for display or ceremonial purposes – particularly christenings for the latter; we are advised that subtle differences in the shape of the aperture on the wider of the two spouts were pertinent to the gender of the child that was being welcomed in to the church.
