LOTASPOUTED WATER VESSEL
Origin:Deccan, South India
18th century A.D.
This Indian brass drinking vessel or spouted lota is notable for several reasons: storing water in brass vessels was meant for healthy living and important for Hindu rituals. It has a flattened, spherical body; a thick, round neck; concave neck at the edge; a curved, elegant spout that narrows as it reaches the opening. Spouted lota’s were used in India to store and serve water. Water was tipped from the spout into the mouth (although not by actually putting the lips to the spout.) Also, in south India, they were used to pour water over the hands and feet.
