A large belly, and a robust handle with reinforced straps create the unmistakable profile of the water and oil jar. Because of the unique properties of foul clay, which is commonly found in the Apennines and worked by the hands of wise craftsmen, the bulgy shape of this terracotta vase, which is able to resist both heat and cold, has guaranteed for centuries the best preservation of the valuable properties of local “gold”. Oil jars are beneficial, natural chests that were used to bring water to refresh the men working in the fields or to preserve the generous flavours of the traditional cuisine from the old towns and villages of the Marche.
