Vessels are containers that can hold liquids, although in general you can fit solid things in as well. If you put more than ten items into a container for liquids you will only see them as "various undissolved substances". You will still be able to count them though.


Precise weights (as measured on the post office balance) and capacities (figured out by actually putting things into the container) should be bolded. Weights gotten by hand-weighing the container, and capacities gotten from appraise, shouldn't be.

This table uses a special template, {{Ves}}, to calculate useful ratios from the weight and capacities. See that template's page for details on using it.

[1]  amber demijohn This is a amber glass demijohn. It has been created to hold ice-cold water, perfect for counteracting the heat of the desert sun. A special lining inside the demijohn supposedly keeps the water cool. It is covered by a wicker frame which protects it against sharp knocks that might otherwise cause it to shatter.

It appears to have something written on it. Written in scrawled letters: "Bloody Stupid" Johnson's patent insulating lining.  || demijohn ||&&&+1800 2 ||&&&&+900 1 || &&+14000 15 5/9 lb || 4000040000 || || || +2314287 2571.43

Harbour mistress' cabinet, Genua  liquor demijohn This is a liquor bottle, for storing liquor. As amazing a coincidence as that may be, it's probably not a good idea to go looking for divine intervention.

Apparently the flesh of the fruit before it is hollowed out can be quite tasty too. A thick leather strap has been attached to the gourd, such that it can be slung over one shoulder. A piece of cork is attached to the gourd's neck and can be used to plug and unplug it.  gourd 31363136     wearable (neck)
[24]  <colour/style hipflask This blackened flask has been shaped with a gentle curve to slip snugly against one's hip and stay

discreet under clothes. A screw top safely seals in any liquid, alcoholic or otherwise. It has been engraved with the Assassins' Guild coat of arms.  || hipflask ||&&&&+225 3/12 ||&&&&&+75 1/12 || &&&&+900 1 || || || || || || ||2 gills (1 5/9 lbs filled)

[26]  old iron saucepan This is an old iron saucepan which looks as if it hasn't been used in some time. It could probably be used to cook something if you were really desperate.  saucepan &&&&+450 6/12 &&&&+450 6/12 &&&&+500 5/9 lb 40004000 +Expression error: Unrecognized punctuation character "?". ? +6480000 7200     2 pints

Used for  marbling  .
[28]  battered tin footbath This is basically a very large, round tin bowl, deep enough to wash your feet in and just shallow enough to let the water slosh over the sides when you do so. The tarnished tin is rather battered, but intact enough to serve its purpose.  furniture &&&+3000 3 4/12 &&&+3000 3 4/12 &&&+4000 4 4/9 lb &&+54000 60     &&+12150 13.5 2 gallons
Fills on command.
[29]  black square bathtub This is a large, square shaped bathtub, about five feet long by five feet wide, and approximately two feet tall. It appears to be made of fine black porcelain, giving it a very nice (and expensive) look, if a bit macabre for some people's taste. It looks like the most comfortable way to use it would be to lie in it diagonally, and the corners are gently rounded off to fit this position nicely. Or it could easily fit two, or maybe even three people sitting side by side along an edge.  furniture &&&+4500 5 &&&+4500 5 &&+54000 60     52 gallons
Fills on command.
[30]  cast iron bathtub The white porcelain sparkles on this cast iron bathtub, it looks heavy but large enough for a couple of people to have a nice bath in.  furniture &&&+4500 5 &&&+2250 2.5 &&+54000 60     52 gallons
Fills on command.
[31]  dented tin jug A tall tin jug, just perfect for keeping with your washbasin by the bed, or pouring water down your back in the bath. It looks as though it's seen some use, being rather scuffed and dented.  furniture &&&+1125 1 3/12 &&&+2625 2 11/12 &&&+4000 4 4/9 lb     1 quart
[32]  heavy copper jug Round-bellied and solid, this formidable copper jug would do just as well at pouring water over your head in the path or clipping your mother-in-law over the head in the kitchen. In fact, a suspicious dent in one side suggests someone might have used it for just that purpose.  furniture &&&+1125 1 3/12 &&&+2625 2 11/12 &&&+4000 4 4/9 lb     2 quarts
[33]  large copper tub Reddish-brown and slightly dented, this heavy copper tub looks like it's spent much of its life being dragged from room to room to bathe people in front of the fireplace. It slopes up gently at either end, at just the angle to encourage you to lie back and relax in the hot water.  furniture &&&+3600 4 &&&+9450 10.5 &&+54000 60     21 gallons
Fills on command.
[34]  tin bathtub This tin bathtub is oval and plenty big enough for two people to soak in, but frankly, this is a utilitarian tub and you probably wouldn't want to spend any more time in it that you absolutely had to. It might, however be the perfect accessory for in front of a witch's fireplace.  furniture &&&+4500 5 &&&+2100 2 4/12 &&+54000 60     109 gallons
Fills on command.
[35]  white square bathtub This is a large, square shaped bathtub, about five feet long by five feet wide, and approximately two feet tall. It appears to be made of fine white porcelain, making it truly fit for a king, or at least some very rich family. By the looks of it, the most comfortable way to use it would be to lie in it diagonally, and the corners are gently rounded off to fit this position nicely. Or it could easily fit two, or even three people sitting side by side along an edge.  furniture &&&+4500 5 &&&+4500 5 &&+54000 60     52 gallons
Fills on command.
[36]  wooden rain barrel Sturdy and well-polished, this open-topped barrel has been bound with shiny brass hoops. There is a matching tap down the bottom of the barrel you could probably get water out of.  furniture &&&+1500 1 8/12 &&&+1500 1 8/12 7900079000 &&+27000 30     4 gallons
