Canakkale Ewer 19th c.

Canakkale 19th - Private Collection Greece

Ewer from Çanakkale Turkey (late 19th century). A pear-shaped body with a narrow neck, a long spout and a flat base. Red earthenware with a white slip and glaze with green splashes. Çanakkale ceramics were very popular in the Greek islands where were exported in large quantities, and for this reason many Greek potters imitated the forms of Çanakkale. This ewer was used for many years by the members of a Greek family for putting olive oil in their food (private collection Athens Greece ).
