Jar, storage, medium

You will find these storage jars invaluable for sauces, condiments, terrines and more. The jars are a simple and utilitarian shape typical of the medieval period in Europe. They are made of terra cotta coloured clay and have a clear glaze inside which extends over the lip and part way down the side. The sides and bottom of the jar are unglazed. Standing the jar in a dish of water creates an evaporative cooler effect which will keep the contents cool. Flared lip holds a cover on tight.

Pair with 4" waxed covers of unbleached linen impregnated with beeswax to keep contents clean and dry. Covers crimp over jar edge and will cling if heated slightly with the hand. (Covers are sold separately and are not included with pots)

Approx 4" tall, 3" at rim,  1 1/4 c. / 10 oz. capacity

MADE IN THE USA / SHOP LOCAL! - These are made in our home town of Ramona by a cottage artisan.

Please note that due to the handcrafted nature of this item, dimensions, decoration & capacity are approximate and will vary slightly from piece to piece.
