Southern Italian Fig Pots

€2.200
Found in Puglia, Southern Italian Fig PotsPuglia
Found in Southern Italy, these exquisite and unusual green pots made in the early 20th century were originally used to preserve dried figs. More commonly seen in a cream ceramic, these particular pieces are an extraordinary green colour due to their copper and iron oxide glaze. This extravagant copper and iron oxide green was usually used for details on ceramics due its extremely high cost. In this case however, the kiln in Southern Italy was closing down and decided to use all of its last copper and iron oxide glaze on these last pots so as not to waste it. Our friends in Southern Italy salvaged the last remaining pots and we have been fortunate enough to collect them all. We have around 16 more pieces coming which we believe to be the last made in this spectacular green.
