Each of these giare are entirely handmade (originally by the coil method and later on a potter’s wheel, in segments) at least a hundred years ago in Puglia, in Southern Italy. After being left to dry as bisqueware in the sunshine, they were fired in a large wood-burning kiln – sometimes a small cave with the entrance bricked shut, or sometimes a large, deep hole with bricked sides and a removable top. Historically, the giara would be used to store the household’s wine and would have a plate cemented on the top so the wine did not sour. Giare make a spectacular statement at the entrance of your home, in your garden, or in the corner of a room that needs some flair. Nest a small plastic pot in the top and plant hanging flowers to spill over the side, or let them stand on their own – they don’t really need a whole lot, they are so gorgeous as-is! They look especially fabulous in pairs or trios, and we are always happy to help envision your space and offer suggestions. We’ve shipped them all over the world (yes, the world!) and are happy to offer them to you with free shipping within the continental United States.

  • Antique Giara 465 41"H
    This antique giara (large urn) is at least 100 years old and comes from Puglia in Southern Italy. These urns (giare is the plural!) were made by hand on a potter's wheel and were used to store wine. A plate was cemented over the top to ensure that the wine did not sour. After all of the wine was drawn from the spigot, the cemented plate was broken off and the giara was reused. There is a small, very old cork above the spout. Please see additional photos for close-up. The price listed includes curbside shipping to anywhere within the continental United States! Local pick-up is also available – please let us know if you’re interested.
