Giant Antique Terracotta Ribbed Olive Jar with Dark Lichen Patination

About

Antique, oversized, terracotta Peloponnesian Koroni olive jar naturally weathered into a beautiful dark patina with lichen. Typical "orcio" cruse shape obtained by rings on rings of clay. Thousands of years ago, the precious, delicious, and healthy oil of olives was stored in jars. These jars were high shouldered, and short necked. There was that long length of time when olive oil was not processed for export, bottled, and shipped. It was stored in jars, the design of which helped to keep the oil fresh. Every country that makes pots produces its own version of the olive jar. In my own collection of handmade terracotta is this olive jar which dates back to the 19th century. Amazing patine and character. Origin: Greece circa 1800. Measurements: 46" height x 45" diameter.
