Description

Collected from throughout the Turkish countryside, these beautiful vessels were used to store grains, olives, oils, and prepared foods. Often buried to preserve their contents at cooler temperatures, they could be found in small Aegean and Mediterranean villages.

From the smallest pitcher to the largest oil jar, each is unique in shape, color, and texture.
Simple utilitarian objects to be appreciated today as folk art.
