Similar ovoid storage jars were used throughout the 1700’s. Made of a
specially formulated stoneware clay to handle liquids, so they are perfect for
pickling as well as for dry storage. These pottery jars were usually covered with a piece of cloth,
paper, leather, or bladder. Handthrown by our potter here in Indiana. 6-1/2” tall by
5” in diameter. Holds a little over a quart. Food-safe, lead-free glaze.

Beautiful craftsmanship, will certainly order again
The pickling jar is stunning, even more beautiful in person than in the photos here. I will certainly be ordering more to add to my kitchen.Review by Jonathan(Posted on 9/11/2017)
