20th Century Large Handmade Terracotta Pots from Tuscany

About

A pair of 20th century large handmade terracotta pots. The very best handmade terracotta pots from Tuscany. Vaso festonato. Superb pots. These are big and handmade. The most famous kind of Tuscan terracotta is produced in Impruneta, an ancient town a little south of Florence. The tradition of making terracotta in this area goes back to the 14th century and its production has progressively impacted on the area’s landscape, architecture, urban design and economy. The so-called cotto dell'Impruneta owes its success to the peculiar properties of the clay found in the area, which is rich in iron, extremely malleable and both elastic and resistant. The clay comes from Impruneta and surroundings, for example from the smaller villages of Ferrone and Tavarnuzze and from the Val di Greve area. The most common terracotta products that are made here are vases, pots and statues, many large and small orci, which is the Italian for a peculiar kind of terracotta vase. Also traditionally produced and used to carry high quality olive oil and wine (also produced in the region).
