This large earthenware jug was made to keep water fresh by allowing it to evaporate through the unglazed walls. Most likely french in origin, it has roughly painted green detailing that add lots of charm. Very decorative.
Found in Bologna.
Condition: Very good. This piece is in very good vintage condition with wear consistent with its age and use. There are no cracks or chips but some flaking of the green glazing in places.
Dimensions: H 34cm x W 19cm.
