Multi coloured antique glazed peasant storage pot
Multi coloured antique glazed peasant storage pot.
This was decorated in a folk style in Europe in the late 19thcentury. The colours are beautiful rustic natural glazes of olive, ochre and umber. The design for its age is incredibly modern. It has been hand thrown and the handle has the potters thumb mark from when it would have been attached.
These would generally been used as storage containers for grains and pulses. Perfect as a flower vase or indeed to use as a water jug on a dinner table.
It is in great condition with aged crazing to the glaze.
