Pilgrim Flask Facon de Venise

A pilgrim flask was originally a flattened gourd-shaped bottle made mostly of pottery intended for use by pilgrims to carry water. Those made since the 15th C of glass may have been more for ornamental purposes. Most of the flasks with this shape are enameled and some decorated with gold-leaf.
