Summary
"This book explores the history, techniques, and cultural significance of medieval aquamanilia, cast metal objects used to pour liquids in both religious and secular rituals. Often created in appealing animal or human forms, aquamanilia feature two openings, one for filling and the other for pouring. They represent the first emergence of hollow-cast vessels in Western Europe and a significant development in the history of technology."--Jacket
