Term for pot-bellied vessels in the shape of a pitcher made of clay or earthenware that tapers up and down. Often painted blue with stylized apple branches or wreaths, the handles are equipped with a handle for pouring and sometimes with a tin lid. The vessel is traditionally used in Germany especially in Hesse and in French Normandy mainly for serving cider respectively. Cidre used. There are different sizes, according to their volume, measured by the number of as ribbed designated glasses. For example, there are 4, 8, 12 or 24 pieces. This corresponds to approximately 1 to 6 liters. But there are also much larger pieces of furniture, which are then stored in so-called "loafers", which are wrought-iron frames. The pouring is made easier by a tilting mechanism that rotates in the center of gravity. The beer mug type commonly used in Germany, usually with a volume of 0.5 l, is also known as beer beer.
