A lug is a typically flattened protuberance, a handle or extrusion located on the side of a ceramics, jug, glass, vase, or other container. They are sometimes found on prehistoric ceramics and stone containers, such as on pots from Ancient Egypt, Hembury ware, claw beakers, and boar spears.
In Japan, Iga ware vases with lugs on each side are called "ears" and are an important feature.
