Rare tall antique French pitcher with green glaze 14½"

SKU: 15447

Dating from the late nineteenth-century, this is a rare, tall water pitcher for large volumes of water. It is probably from Saint-Jean-de-Fos. They were glazed on the top half to keep the water cool inside, as well as to stop little creatures from climbing inside. A superb piece to display with a collection of antique French pottery. Similar to a pichet de barque but with the top open rather than half closed.
