In Arabic, 'briq' simply means pitcher, jug or juglet.

In Lebanon, this is the name for these uniquely-shaped hand-made water pitches that have bulbous bodes and straight or tapered necks with a loop near the wide opening at the top and a tapered spout facing upward directly opposite it. This loop can be used as a handle, but is more often used to put a stabilizing finger inside when carrying the object or lifting it for a drink. The spout is not generally used for pouring the contents into another container like most pitchers are, instead it's to constrict the water flow to a manageable amount for drinking.
