Title: Pilgrim Flask
Materials: probably zinc
Dimensions: 42cm (height, excluding chain); 34cm (diameter)
Accession Number: MTW 1754
Other Notes: The front and back of the flask are stamped with the words hajji … numero 283. A tag attached to the chain carries a similar stamp and a blue ceramic bead for protection against the evil eye. The flat back of the flask allowed it to fit comfortably against the flank of a camel or horse.
