This is a huge, French clay olive oil urn. It is a wonderful decorative item for any French country kitchen or provincial farmhouse interior.
'Aged to perfection' the patina of its 'rough' glaze style oozes rustic charm. These type of jars were very popular in the late 19th century for the storage and transportation of olive and walnut oils, keeping them cool.
It has an elegant shape, narrow neck and tapered body. Hand thrown jars, such as this one, are increasingly rare to source and are becoming collectors pieces.
This extra large urn has all the charm of French vintage rural life. The perfect gift for lovers of rustic pottery.
Solid and sturdy, it weighs 3.5kgs/ 7.7lb!
It stands 36cms / 14¼" tall, is 15cms / 6" diameter (at the base) 24cms/ 9½" wide to the handle. The opening is 2.5cms / 1".
It is in excellent condition, still watertight and clean. Utterly charming, it has odd 'dints' and undulations in the clay but no chips, just a few marks, consistent with its age and use, nothing at all to detract from its beauty or functionality, it is authentic and original.
