Puzzle Jug - (Ceramics Pottery)

Puzzle Jug - (Ceramics, Pottery) Pottery drinking jug, usually with a full, pierced neck, which contains a hidden tube that enables the contents to be drained by suction. Several apertures (including one that may be hidden) are available to the drinker; he must drink from one, which he can only do if he successfully blocks all the others. Made at various centers during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; humorous inscriptions are often found on these jugs.
