Clay container

This water bottle was probably made in North Devon in the nineteenth century. It has a glazed interior to allow it to hold liquid, but the lower half of the exterior has been left unglazed. This could allow a cooling effect on the contents through evaporation. The holes in the lugs on the shoulders of the pot would allow straps to be attached for carrying.
