French Green Glazed Oil Pitcher
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 wondrous luster.
