French Green-Glazed Oil Pitcher
Dimensions: 12-1/4″H x 11-3/8″W x 9-3/4″D
An amazing green-glazed oil pitcher from 19th-century France. These pitchers were used to hold and pour olive or walnut oil. The pitcher’s ingenious design incorporates the spout into the handle, making the pitcher a functional work of art. These pitchers would also be used to pour wine and water, and were not limited strictly to oils. The brilliant-green glaze is extraordinarily well-preserved with vivid, deep color and wonderful luster.
