Rustic Early 1800's Handmade Antique French Walnut Oil Jug

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Absolutely incredible primitive handmade French oil jug retaining it's 3 original handles and spout. This stunning early 19th century jug has survived the test of time, enduring it with no major losses whatsoever. In most cases, by the time these have reached Chicago, they have lost their spout or handles however, that is not the case here. One hundred percent untouched original. Decorators and designers love these for their rustic design and overall beauty. You might be surprised at just how well a dirty French pot can look in your place; believe me it's very shocking. Speaking of dirt, well we liked the overall appearance, therefore we left it.
