Name: Redoma (Flask)
Size: 20 cm height
Ceramic Type: Mayolica andalusi
Colors: Green or Blue
Shape: Spherical with a pointed neck and double handle
Recommendations: This piece looks like a small jug, so we recommend using it as an oil or vinegar container or to contain liquids. It is not recommended to use in dishwasher or microwave.
It could contain any kind of liquid.
The design of this Andalusian Redoma or flask is one of the icons of Nazari ceramics.
It was a piece widely used in the domestic trousseau of Al Ándalus due to its usefulness for containing liquids, especially olive oil.
We have taken as a reference one of the most elaborated models which was found in The Alhambra and is currently still in the archaeological Carlos V Museum at the Alhambra in Granada.
With an approximate 20 cm height, it has a spherical base to contain up to 500 ml, the high but proportionate neck makes it a slender figure, finally widening the lip to end in the small spout through which to pour the liquid.
But the making of this piece does not end here, since technically it has details that at first may seem aesthetic but actually have a function that gives it an exemplary perfection:
– Double lip: It has a double lip ending, a simple detail that helps when after pouring the liquid, the flask does not drip.
– Double handle: Normally the handle starts from the base, but the Redoma has a small, very simple reinforcement at the start that gives it strength when it comes to supporting the weight when it is full.
– Ring on the neck: Another small detail that helps to hold the flask when it is held by the neck.
