Tiggy & Pip is a vintage home décor shop by mother and son décor and interior design loving duo, Tiggy and Pip Coudray.
With a shared love of all things French and vintage we opened our shop in 2011.
Based in France, between Cognac and La Rochelle, we source unusual items from recent French and European history. Everyday French household items from the 1880's to 1980's which, although at one time were plentiful, are now increasingly rare and collectible. We source specialist props for films/photo shoots and interior designers. Many of our 'finds' are currently on display in a number of top New York restaurants and Hollywood apartments.
This large, French, clay olive oil jar is a wonderful decorative item for any French country kitchen or provincial farmhouse interior.
'Aged to perfection' the patina of its glaze oozes rustic charm. Used for the storage and transportation of olive and walnut oils, keeping them cool, this smaller version of the larger jars was designed for daily use, it being the perfect size for kitchen shelf / larder storage. Oil would be decanted into this jar from larger 'urns' in the house cellar.
It has an elegant shape, narrow neck and tapered body. Hand thrown jars, such as this one, are increasingly rare to source and are becoming collectors pieces.
A delightful olive oil jar with all the charm of French vintage rural life. The perfect gift for lovers of rustic pottery.
It is heavy, weighing 2.6kgs/ 5.7lbs. It stands 29cms / 11 ½" tall (with lid), is 12cms / 4¾" diameter (at the base) 22cms/ 8½" wide, to the handles. The top opening is 8.5cms / 3¾", the cork/tap hole is 2.5cms/ 1".
This jar and lid are in excellent condition, they have no chips or cracks. Utterly charming, it is authentic and original. It will be easy to fit either a cork stopper or tap cork into the urn.
