Antique, large-sized jar in 4-layer glazed terracotta, from the 19th century.
The jar in raw ceramic underwent a first firing in the kiln, later on it was coated with an engobe glaze or slip and fired, and then tin-glazed.
It was used as a food container and is likely from the 19th century.
Thanks to its glazed surface inside, it could be used to store the meat under fat, in wintertime.
The 4x eyelets near the opening are used to hook the jar with ropes for an easy transport and storage.With small parts missing, and some scratches due to use and age, as pictured.
Rare and interesting item in good overall condition, with a charming antique patina.
Perfect to be displayed in a garden or to be used as a large sized floor cachepot.
