Puzzle Jug

This is the newest item added to our inventory in 2015. It is my version of a "puzzle jug."   Puzzle jugs seem to have originated in France in the 13th century. They began to be seen in England in the 1500s.  So I thought it would be  a nice item to add to our inventory, since we vend mostly at Renaissance Festivals.  Puzzle jugs most often had a taunt written or inscribed on them, inviting one to drink but not to spill.  This one is inscribed "Come drink your fill, but do not spill."    I have two puzzle jugs completed and one still in the works.
