French 17th or early 18th Century terracotta water jar. This large ceramic jar has three handles, at either side and the back with a round spout at the front. All handles and the spout are joined to the body with handmade indentations. The jar has a beautiful tan patina with tones of green, and speckles of terracotta where the glaze has worn over time. An amazing feature item for any home or public area space. This piece has worn exceedingly well for its age.
