18th century conscience jug - yellow 15"

SKU: 15328

A late eighteenth-century 'conscience' jug with lovely yellow ocher glaze. There are four handles - two on each side and a spout on the top. Conscience jugs were carried by threading rope through the loop handles. A lovely piece to add to a collection of French pottery.

Conscience jugs have a lovely history - they were used by the church to collect olive oil for the poor from farmers after the olive harvest.
