Vessels such as this large grain or olive oil pot have been used for centuries throughout Greece to keep culinary ingredients fresh. Ours dates to the 1800s and has a form known as a koroniotiko, as the initial pots originated in the town of Koroni/Corone. The bulbous body has undulating ridges with varying degrees of spacing, giving the pot a unique appearance and texture. A ring of indented gridding can be seen below the short neck, once again adding character and graining. The pot has the traditional terra cotta orange finish, but years of exposure to the elements have given some areas a whitened patina. A one-of-a-kind Greek koroniotiko, our grains or olive oil pot can be used inside or outdoors as a planter or decorative accessory.
CONDITION: Good condition with commensurate nicks and losses. Minor buildup to the interior.
