19th century Olive Oil Jar

19th century Olive Oil Jar

#89085

Many years ago, the precious and delicious oil was stored (and transported) in jars, with high shoulders and short necks, with each civilization creating their own version of the "olive oil" jar. Since we are not limited by terra cotta jars for storage or transportation anymore, the symbolic shape of the olive oil jar still resounds, specifically in the realm of agriculture and (ornamental) gardening.
