Antique olive glazed storage pot

SKU: TMIR000144
  • Olive glazed antique peasant storage pot.


    This will have been produced in Europe in the 19thcentury. The colour is beautiful and rustic with a glaze of dark olive. The internal is a beautiful yellow ochre. The shape is amazing. It has been hand thrown and the handle has the potters thumb mark from when it would have been attached. There is also what looks like a signatureSon the handle itself. It has a charming embossed tramline around the circumference at the top.


    These would generally been used as storage containers for grains and pulses. Perfect as a flower vase or indeed as a decorative object as part of a grouping.


    It is in great condition with historic rough work rim. 




    H: 20cm (8 in)
