A remarkable, very old terracotta oil jar, raised on an iron metal tripod stand.

Buff clay, this terracotta urn features rows of rope-twist detail below a very nice, crisp rim.

Still containing remnants of olive oil on the interior, this is a marvellous piece of provincial pottery. Although it incurred some knocks making it to the Yard, (a few scuffs on one side) it won't take long for these to weather over. No worrying defects. Photographed showing it's good side.

Eco-Friendly

Nothing is more sustainable than using antiques around your home and garden. Buying antiques is a truly effective way for you to take direct action to help the environment. It is the ultimate in recycling with antiques being the eco-conscious choice that is often overlooked.

Condition Disclaimer

All of our antique pots have been personally sourced and chosen.

  • Expect minor scratches, nicks, chibbles and scuffs along with light surface wear and variations in colour due to exposure to the elements. These aren't 'off the shelf' products.
  • Unless stated in the description, these arrive structurally sound and free from detrimental cracks. Thomas wouldn't sell anything that he personally wouldn't be confident using.
  • Condition Reports. Should you ever like a condition report on a specific pot just send us a message and we will get back to you with relevant comments and pictures.
  • We offer no guarantee on antique/reclaimed pots. However, we see that as they have survived for multiple decades, looked after, they will go on much longer. See below for details.

Care

Winter

Should harsh frosts be expected, particularly for prolonged periods, ensure to either wrap your pots with plastic bubble wrap or move them to a more sheltered spot to be stored until going back out on display in Spring (a glasshouse, shed, garage, outdoor kitchen...).

However, don't forget that each of these pots have lasted numerous Seasons over the course of their lives so far. The Mediterranean can see equally cold Winters as we do here.

Drainage

All of our antique pots feature drainage holes in the base. In the Yard we have discovered that soggy Autumn/Winter leaf drop can lead to drainage holes becoming clogged up. To combat this we recommend that you place a wire mesh inside your pot to catch leaf drop before it gathers in the base.

Shipping

Due to the nature of our antique pots, we would always recommend a personal delivery service or courier to handle your delivery.

Testimonials

Chloe

I bought two Cretan pots for my sister's 40th birthday present, with only a week's notice. Tom was incredibly helpful - made a huge effort to get the pots safely to her on time - and even called to follow up and check on their safe arrival. The pots themselves are beautiful - my sister is delighted. I cannot recommend Tom's Yard highly enough - great products and flawless customer service!

Darrell

I purchased an Olive Tree and a Tuscan Planter from Tom's Yard. The items were delivered by Tom and he planted the tree for me and positioned the pot. I'm very pleased with both items and they look stunning in my garden. Tom also gave me advice on how to care for the Tree. I would highly recommend Tom, he's a very nice chap and a true professional. I will buy from him again.

John

Jayne

I met Tom a month ago when I bought 2 beehive pots. I was so impressed with the product and his knowledge I visited his yard today. I bought 5 pots - and am so pleased with them. I will definitely go back to buy more.
His yard is amazing and I would recommend a visit- you will not be disappointed.
