Uo Rosado

Description
This blue monochrome albarello is decorated with cobalt blue vines and leaves. The escroll in the center of the container is inscribed with gothic script that reads Uo rosado. This jar would have contained Unguento Rosado, an ointment made from lard and roses that served to alleviate skin sores and kidney pain.
