This is a lovely rare hand made ceramic vase in a rich mid brown slightly iridescent salt glaze.
This vase was originally used as a drinks bottle. Stoneware clay was a common material and more easy to source than glass. This type of bottle was therefore widely used in the days before plastic bottles were invented.
Despite the fact that they were hand made they were made in large numbers but they are now rare finds. This one makes a beautiful vase. It is also a little piece of history and a beautiful object in its own right.
It is a great size to have around the home.
