The jug ​​is entirely handmade by Italian master artisans, it was antiqued according to the medieval style of the fourteenth century, inspired by a jug kept in the museum of the Fortress of Castrocaro Terme.

It is enamelled internally; while the external surface, with the exception of the foot, presents a layer of enamel still poor according to the ways of the medieval Archaic period.

At the center the emblem of the Green Lion of the Ordelaffi, who were lords of Forlì.

They are quoted in Dante's Divine Comedy:

alla domanda di Guido di Montefeltro, capitano dei Forlivesi, "dimmi se i Romagnoli han pace o guerra" (Inferno, XXVII, 28-37) Dante risponde: "Romagna tua non è, e non fu mai, sanza guerra ne' cuor de' suoi tiranni; ma 'n palese nessuna or vi lascia" (...) 

La terrra che fè già la lunga prova (Forlì) e di Franceschi sanguinoso mucchio, sotto le branche verdi (le zampe del leone) si ritrova (Inferno, XXVII, 43-45).

It is ideal to use as a jug to serve wine or beer at the tavern, in events reminiscent of medieval times or as a gift idea.

The jug is handmade and antiqued, so each piece is unique.

 The terracotta medieval jug is handmade in Italy
