These French terra cotta storage jugs are unusually large. The one on the left is 17 1/2" tall and the right is 21 1/2". They were most likely made for storage of food like olives but have decorative uses in contemporary homes. In addition to vases for flowers, for instance, they would make wonderful umbrella or cane stands. They are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. They show expected signs of wear for utilitarian pottery. Probably made circa 1930. They are offered for sale individually.
