One large vessel featuring two male visages on both of its sides and its handle adorned with intertwined snakes. This piece is unfortunately in poor condition, with its handle broken and an attempted repair leaving very visible traces of epoxy. In addition, a portion above the brow of the one of the men has broken off (but in a fairly clean break). It is included for potential future repair. One of the snake heads is missing entirely. From the collection of a world traveler of 45+ years who has circumnavigated the globe via sailboat.
