Antique cream and blue Italian jug


An antique hand-thrown jug from Basilicata, Italy, with a floral motif reminiscent of watercolour paintings. The delicate surface decoration with sky blue set against an ivory glaze, showcases the skill of the artisan potter. Wine and water jugs from Puglia and Basilicata usually have the most extensive decorations and this one dates back to the late 1800s, with its lovely form, unique decoration and pinched spout that set it apart as a particular piece. Today, this terracotta piece would be ideal as a vase for fresh flowers or as a decorative display piece.
