Antique French yellow-ocher "orjol" pitcher - large 15"

SKU: 16027

Dating from the end of the nineteenth/early twentieth century from the south-west of France, this delightful yellow-ocher earthenware pitcher is the perfect way to bring a piece of the French country to your home. Used by villagers to collect water and carry it back atop their heads to their tables, the handles are large to assist, and there is a spout that comes out of one handle. There are holes around the neck and underneath, therefore not water-tight, which would have been added at a later time. This would make a lovely decorative addition to a collection of pottery or as a charming individual piece. 

Condition and wear consistent with age and use.
Approx. overall 15" high x 12½" wide incl. handle & spout x 10¼" diameter
Approx. overall 38cm high x 32cm wide incl. handle & spout x 26cm diameter
