In the Iron Age II-III Iran, pottery and metal vessels, with a long, beaked spout, are defined as ‘pitchers’. Innovative elements such as, plain or twisted handles and cylindrical or tripod stands were commonly added to pottery versions, during the Iron Age. Iranian spouted jar, ornamented with zoomorphic terminals and a quadruped handle, were imitations of their metal counterparts. Pottery vessels of such a type, during the Iron Age period, often feature small pellets around the handle area, reminiscent of the repoussé technique that was frequently applied on the Iron Age Iranian metal ware’s surfaces. Zoomorphic vessels of this type, were clearly designed as a pouring vessel, but they might have been used in a particular funerary ritual occasion.
