Leather drinking vessels (costrel) and water carriers have been in use since Neolithic times, but it was during the medieval and later Tudor periods that they became particularly popular.
Holds approx. 1 litre
We recommend washing this bottle thoroughly before using it to carry liquid. Fight Club also suggests sealing the costrel with beeswax.
Length including wooden stopper - 36cm
Width of bbottle - 28cm
Please Note: The leather on these bottles may dry out in storage & cause the seams to leak. Simply fill with water and leave the leather to re-hydrate. If the leaking continues you may need to add a lining of beeswax to reseal the seams
