Mystery Solved

    It was for drinking wine, I was told that it was held by someone else, the wine comes out at a fine flow, the person receiving the wine tilts their head back and opens their mouth, not sure if it is totally correct! These vessels were brought back from Spain by the holiday makers, no doubt trying the art it out!!LOL!!

    I think the other capped spout is to give the Wine air so it would flow out at a steady stream

    Well, I think you need a Spaniard here ;)

    This is called a PORRÓN _the stress on the last "O"-and yes, it's one of the traditional ways for drinking wine (the other one is the BOTA)

    Not too long I talked about it when presenting a Bengt Orup for Johansfors one. This is the link of it and you'll be able to see some quite instructive images of how it's used:

    The one you've got is just the porrón I used to see being sold as souvenirs in coastal towns when i was a kid in the 1970S -I was born in 1968-, so that's probably how the previous owner got it.

    In some holiday resorts isn't uncommon seeing people using them in certain bars, competing on who's the one who can drink the most at once :D

    I hope I've been helpful. Don't hesitate to ask more things!!!
