Description

Textured terracotta vintage jar 80+ years old.  From Mexico this old cultural vessel are known as "jarroncitos" or little bottles. Dating back generations, artisans created decorative terracotta bottles like this one to carry and distill oils and beverages from the agave plant and other native plants. This very old terracotta vase/jar rests naturally in the solid steel stand custom-made just for this piece. The black stand has a minimal design complimenting the sculptural beauty of the vintage bottle. Decades of exposure to the elements has transformed the exterior terracotta surface. Impressions and textures from moss that once grew over this bottle are still visible. A horizon of earthen colors from charcoal and slate grey to ash white and smokey beige. Natural color variation as shown in photos.
