Antique Huge 4-foot High Amphora Jar
$5,400.00
Commonly called an olive oil jar in the trade, but are actually an amphora, which is a type of container of a specific shape and dimension, beginning in the Neolithic Period, which ran from approximately 9000BC to 3500BC. Generally, Amphorae were used in large numbers to transport olive oil and wine. Today, we find interior designers use the amphora vases as you would a sculpture and they are equally at home placed inside the house or in the garden. Currently we are listing several amphorae and all were found outside a chateau on the outskirts of Bordeaux.
