More information

The design of this earthenware cooking pot is inspired by similar, most costly examples in bronze (such as no. F 8493). The bronze shape was copied by potters to increase their attractiveness through association with valuable bronze pots. Such hooked handles made of pottery are, however, too weak to support the weight of a full pot, in this case 2.6 litres. Since a round ear was better, the angular shape soon disappeared.
