A rare opportunity to own an old Cretan terracotta Pithoi jar.


This large vessel was used for the storage of oils. This practice of using large, wide terracotta jars (named Pithoi) is a common use on the island with a history going back thousands of years. This pot is estimated to be approximately 100-150 years old.


This large, sculptural jar would make an incredible statement - be it around a lobby in a hotel, an orangery or dressing the floor in a restaurant / outdoor kitchen space. Currently no drainage holes in the base, these can be arranged upon request.
