Large antique French cruche w/ classic Val de Saône pottery designs 15"

SKU: 16820

This lovely large antique cruche from the nineteenth century comes from the Val de Saône area north of Lyon, France. Characteristic of this celebrated pottery region, note the rich red-brown glazing with beige patterns decorating the pot. Ewers like these were used for fetching water from the village fountain for domestic use. This piece would be the perfect addition to an existing collection of pottery or transformed into a table lamp to add a special touch of French to your home.
