Antique olive glazed storage pot
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 yellowy olive. The internal is a beautiful yellow ochre. It has been hand thrown and the handle has the potters thumb mark from when it would have been attached. It has a charming embossed line around the circumference at the top.
These would generally been used as storage containers for grains and pulses but this could have been a butter churn. Perfect as a flower vase or indeed as a decorative object as part of a grouping.
It is in great condition with historic dribbled glaze.
