Claret jugs have been split into two sections in order to make it easier to find what you are looking for. Splitting between those with metal tops and those with glass stoppers seemed the visually logical thing to do.
Some Claret Jugs can essentially be a decanter with a handle and pouring lip, others can distinctly be claret jugs where there is no decanter equivalent. For the sake of this web site if it is like a decanter, has a stopper or lid, and has a handle, it's a claret jug. In this way I can avoid having to consider flasks, noggins, etc.. and having death by classification.
