19th Century French Provencal Mustard Glazed Terracotta Olive Oil Jar Amphora
Add a Mediterranean touch to your indoor or outdoor spaces with this elegant antique terracotta Amphora. Crafted in Provence, southern France circa 1860, and built of earthenware, the large urn has a traditional round shape over a long neck; it is dressed with double handles, and features a pouring spout at the bottom. The tall time-worn olive oil jar is in excellent condition commensurate with age and use, and adorns a beautiful and rich hand painted mustard glazing finish throughout. Versatile, the vessel could be placed in a room corner filled with dry foliage, or outside on a garden patio. In the south of France and especially in Biot (small village on the French Riviera), these olive pots are also known as the “king of jars,” and were used to transport olive oil in the 18th and 19th century. Measures: 21″ diameter 38.5″ height.
