Tuscan pottery jug, c.1860

When this redware pottery Italian jug from the mid-1800’s cracked, a skillful person enmeshed it in a hand-woven wire net.

I spotted this jug at an outdoor market in Tuscany a few years ago and since then I discovered similarly repaired pottery from other European countries.

The large rim chip on the lip reveals the red clay underneath the black glaze. Jug stands 6-3/4″ high.

    I am planning a trip to Tuscany to find similar make-dos. Do you offer trips to search in Europe? It would be wonderful to have an expert as a guide.
