Bridge spouted vessel

Bridge spouted vessel

A bridge spouted vessel is a particular design of pitcher originating in antiquity; there is typically a connecting element between the spout and filling aperture, and the spout is a completely independent aperture from the usually smaller central fill opening. Early incidences of the bridge spouted vessel are found in Persia in the early Iron Age [ [ British Museum: example of bridge spouted jug] ] and on Crete. This type of vessel typically appears in the Bronze Age or early Iron Age. A very early example of a bridge spouted bowl has been recovered at the ancient palace of Phaistos on Crete, dating to the Bronze Age.
