Sicilian bummule for water and wine, with Paladino. It is in ceramic, made and hand painted with non-toxic materials and colors. It's a curious and funny object at the table, puts party among the diners for the amazement effect at each use.
In fact, the liquids are poured from the hole below, overturning it, but when it is brought back into position the liquids do not come out even though there is no cap, thanks to an internal system of communicating vessels.
The bummule is also capable of maintaining the temperature of the liquids it contains unchanged, thanks to the breathable terracotta.
It measures 27 cm in height
The bummule is an object that arouses my memories as a child: in the kitchen demy paternal grandparents there was one in terracotta to cool the water and a larger one in ceramic to keep the wine.
In the summer it was wonderful to mix that water after the long runs of hide and seek games: we found it fresh and delicious, even though it was not kept in the refrigerator.
