With elegant proportions and simple design, this 19th-century Mediterranean olive oil jar has the timeless beauty of a Greek amphora or a provincial Chinese wine jar. The jar would have been used in the home to store olive oil or other liquids, as evidenced by the cream-colored glaze coating the interior. Ridges patterning the exterior add rhythmic texture to the gently tapered form and the raw, unglazed finish has beautifully aged from a century of use, darkened by a subtle patina. Set on a custom steel mount, this functional household object lives on as a sculptural glimpse of the past.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
