Vintage clay jug from Alcobaca in Portugal.

Small hand thrown jug in beautiful red clay with a traditional hand painted black and white design and glossy glaze.

Delicate squiggles and dots in thickly applied white paint surround linear black bands to the centre of the jug. Black borders edge the base and opening of the jug.

Unstamped piece but distinctive of the traditional pottery of Alcobaca. A similar signed piece was sold recently and can be viewed here.

Approximately 16cm tall and 14cm wide from the belly of the jug to the handle.

Very good vintage condition with light scratches and a slightly rustic appearance.

All our pieces have a past and may feature age-related marks which we believe add to their charm. If you have any questions about this item or would like to see further photographs, please do get in touch.
