These vessels held hot coals for cooking. They control the fire, yet allow it to breathe. They also have fingers (left) or a "horseshoe" rim (right) to support a cookpot.
These vessels are part of the collection of traditional pottery (Ottoman period) at the Palestinian Institute of Archaeology, Birzeit University.
