Georgian tableware - Wineskin

Tiki (Wineskin) - old Georgian wine vessel made from bubalus, goat or bull leather. In order to get rid of losing the liquid, it's isolated with the resin from inside. It was made of various sizes - little size, table size and for transporting.
It was necessary to use a hando holder, to make it easier to use or move.
Despite the fact that the tail was light and easy to use, at the end of the 19th century it was replaced by wooden barrels, as the tail wines could only storaged in wineskin for a week. The wine in the tail should be used very soon, because in other case it would become a vinegar.
