French Country charm at its best, this Antique French Stoneware Calvados Jar was hand made in a small village in Normandy. Calvados is an apple brandy made from small crab apples grown in the Normandy region of France. Stoneware jugs such as this one were perfect to use to store and age the brandy, as the stoneware is not porous.
Glazed in the classic gres color, this decorative vessel has the incised initials G M on the front, and a 3 on the handle. This jug has beautiful, clean country design lines, and is a work of folk art to display in your French Country home. Has glaze variations and plenty of personality and patina to make a statement. Measures 11-1/2" h x 6".
