Two-handled vase with a mark, closed with linen cloth

The tableware includes a number of amphorae decorated with petals and flowers painted around the necks. These jars are usually rounded, with one or two handles and a long, elegantly-colored neck. They were generally used as bottles to hold wine, a precious beverage that was almost exclusively consumed by wealthy families
