    Just wondering if this is a real coat of arms or a reproduction. Made in Italy is carved into the bottom. I love the coloring or this jug.

      So It is a pilgrim's flask. They are tourist items probably picked up in Florence. They are also used as liqueur bottles too by some companies like "Certosa". Walter Del Pellegrino says that:"have seen dozens of these items over the years, however, it is the bottles shaped like Pilgrim's flasks and decorated in the Renaissance style of Grottesche (Raffaellesco) that still garner the most attention. I have seen these items bearing the maker's marks of some of the most important pottery studios in Italy. These include Salvini, Cantagalli, Colonnata, Fantechi and Fanciullacci."
