Hand made replica paint jar, each jar is unique!
In the seventeenth century potters or ceramists established themselves on the edge of the growing city of Amsterdam. They made tiles and pottery like bowls, beakers, pipes and cooking pots. They used easy to obtain river clay that turned red after baking. The clay was purified, as much as possible, because small pebbles or plants did remain in the clay, and molded. Little jars such as these for mixing or storing paint were made of left over clay. Because they are hand made each jar is unique. Then and now. Each jar is glazed on the inside so can be used for storing liquids. The height varies from 3.5 to 5.5 cm.
