No, this isn’t a set piece from Prometheus! It’s actually a depiction of a mammoth Spanish wine jug that was displayed in London during the Great Exhibition of 1851. It was at least 10 feet tall. Do you think Bernard and Manny (from Black Books, duh!) ever tried to create their own — in honor of Prince Albert, of course.
