water jugs (jugs (food service))

Copper water jug with a globular body and a pedestal base made of separate parts joined together. The mouth of the jug is a separate element attached to the neck, and broadens to an everted, rolled out rim. Straight upward-slanting spout attached to the shoulder. An inscription on one side of the body of the jug in Kaithi script appears to relate to measurements.
