This is an absolutely stunning, vintage terracotta water/wine cooler for outdoor dining.
Glazed on the outside in a gorgeous, smooth, creamy glaze, with blue rim. It has the words "Brique à Eau" (Water Brick) written across the front. It also has the words "Legunda de Quézac" which is a famous, French source of water, from the valley of Quézac, at the entrance to the Gorges du Tarn. There is a legend that says "a very long time ago, perhaps more than a thousand years ago, the waters of a terrible storm left the earth of the land of Quézac. It is said that, year after year, the waters of this storm took its strength from the stone and were charged with miraculous bubbles. Legend has it that if the water ever sprang up again, it would bring joy and long life to anyone who drank it."
L'eau de Quézac" is a very famous brand of spring water here in France.
Elegant and stylish, this cooler is perfect for Summer drinks outdoors. It would make a great gift for a host/hostess filled with their favourite bottle.

The cooler is unglazed terracotta on the inside, super smooth. It is in amazing condition, with no chips, scratches or cracks. It has a couple of light surface marks on the unglazed bottom.

It stands 21cms/8¼" tall and is 12cms/ 4¾" diameter.
It weighs 1.2kgs/ 2.6 lbs.

These wine/water coolers are very effective during Summer to keep your white wine or rosé chilled. It can also be used in Winter to keep your red wine at the correct room temperature.

How it works (there are two ways to use it):

For chilling white wine and rosé:
Soak the wine cooler in cold water for about 7 minutes. The clay will darken as it absorbs the moisture, empty the water and place your favourite bottle of chilled wine in the cooler. The evaporation process will keep your wine cold for 3/4 hours!

For maintaining red wine at the 'idéale température':
Once you have warmed your red wine to the correct room temperature simply place it into the wine cooler and it will remain at the same temperature throughout the meal.
