A large North African terracotta storage jar,
19th Century, hand thrown, with a limed exterior,
the tapering pot with a weathered patina and part-glazed,
This pot was sourced in Morocco; similar pots can originate from anywhere in the Mediterranean region. They are often kept in cool cellars and are sealed for long-term and seasonal storage of all manner of produce: grain, olive oil, figs etc. and make wonderful garden ornaments. Whilst we can't guarantee them against frost we know them to be very hardy.
