19th-century French walnut oil jar w/ yellow glaze - large 14½"

SKU: 16826

This superb, large, yellow-glazed terracotta walnut oil jar dates from the late eighteenth / early nineteenth century. It is beautifully decorated with 'doigtier' ornamentation in an S-pattern down the sides and around the spout - a technique where the potter presses into the clay to make a chain like pattern. There are three ribbed handles and a pouring spout.

It is a lovely size - larger than usual and in very good condition considering its age. A splendid addition to a collection of pottery or transformed into a table lamp to add illuminate your home with French charm. If being used as a vase, a watertight container needs to be put inside.

Condition and wear consistent with age and use. 
Approx. overall 14½" high x 14¼" wide x 13" deep
Approx. overall 37cm high x 36cm wide x 33cm deep
