An impressive flago in a lovely dark patina. It holds 8 bottles of wine (we checked), so it was probably for ale: if that overawes you, use it for a flower arrangement. Nice gadrooning around the base, nice petals underneath, but what really stands out is the quality of the engraving. The deer are truly lifelike -- look at their postures and at the texture of their fur. Even the tree trunks have a woody surface. Wine, ale or flowers -- fill it as you like, or leave it empty: it's a lovely thing!
