Ancient Fire Hydrant

Far more beautiful than the ubiquitous modern red fire extinguishers dotting all of the palaces, both were designed for the same purpose - to put out fires. Between the Japanese invaders and more "natural" causes, the wood structures were at constant threat of fire. Even in the best-case scenario, I wonder how successful these pots were for fire-fighting.
