French, Half Glazed Gargoulette Jug
Beautiful French 19th century, glazed gargoulette jug from Provencal.
A gargoulette was originally a water cooler, with a handle and spout. Decorated on the upper part with caramel brown glaze, these were only half glazed as they would have been stored underground.
Size; 9 1/2H x 5 1/2 diameter
