W200xD150xH230mm, China

This is no ordinary wine jar but one that is without a lid.  One might wonder if all the wine has to be poured through the spout, but that will be a waste of wine.  Turning the jar upside down there is a hole at the bottom, but would’t the water just fall out when the jar is turned around?  The trick of the jar is built within the pottery, the hole a the bottom is extended by a tube which extends upwards to a height which is above the opening of the spout.  The wine is trapped around the tube ready to be poured out.
