THIS IS THE CRUCHE FORM FOR POURING WATER AT DINNER. EACH REGION HAD ITS OWN DESIGN BUT THE CRUCHE OF LANGUEDOC, WITH ITS TWO HANDLES, ONE USED AS A SPOUT, WAS CONSIDERED THE MOST INNOVATIVE CRUCHE (CALLED ORJOL IN LANGUEDOC). AS THESE VESSELS WERE VERY HEAVY WHEN FILLED WITH WATER... AND THE WIFE WAS EXPECTED TO REFILL GLASSES...
SHE WOULD DRAG THE ORJOL ACROSS THE TABLE AND POUR THE WATER FROM THE CRUCHE OFF THE SIDE OF THE TABLE. MUCH EASIER DOING IT THAT WAY.
THE EDGE OF THE TABLE ALSO WORKED AS A SAFETY. THIS YELLOW GLAZE IS THICK AND BEYOND BEAUTIFUL. MANY MORE GREEN ORJOLS THAN THE COLOR YELLOW WERE PRODUCED DURING THE 19THC.
PERFECT DESIGN, FORM AND GLAZE. A REAL'JAUNES ET VERTE' ORJOL OF AUTHENTICITY AND TOP QUALITY. 9.5 INCHES IN HT.
