Late 19th Century Antique Giara from South Italy Puglia

3,500.00

This antique giara (large urn) is at least 150 years old and comes from Puglia in Southern Italy.

These urns were made by hand on a potter's wheel and were used to store wine.

A plate was cemented over the top to ensure that the wine did not sour. After all of the wine was drawn from the spigot, the cemented plate was broken off and the giara was reused.
