Antique Moroccan Terracotta Vase
14"W x 14"D x 20.5"H - Morocco - Terracotta
These antique Moroccan pots were discovered in late 2019 on one of our expeditions. I searched every day for them and was told by vendors throughout Morocco that they could no longer be found anymore because all of the antique pots had been exported to Europe. We finally found one guy who had a yard that had remained closed for years. When the gates opened, we can't tell you how thrilled we were. This antique water pot was intentionally made porous by the desert people of the Atlas mountains. When filled with water, the wind would pass through it and cool down its contents.
