Cylindrical container of earthenware, the shape derived from Hispano-Moresque and Islamic pottery. Divided into two compartments with openings each end which form animal heads (one broken and restored); rudimentary feet. Covered with white slip with incised decoration and translucent glaze. Foliate scrolls on the body; at one end, an inscription "VIN BIAN"; at the other "VIN NERO"; also "OLEUM" and "AZETO"; and "1525" in the centre.
