Spanish 19th C. Tinaja Jar on Custom Stand
A large Spanish toledo urn from the late 19th century on custom iron stand. This beautiful Tinaja (Spanish for clay jar) has a single spout near the bottom and is marked/carved at one side with "Padilla Villarrobledo", the village from where this jar originates, and additional numbering information below. The jars were used to store and cool water. They were also used in the aging process in wine making as the clay would allow the wine to breathe and not have an effect on taste as wood barrels do. Though the jar has a nice height of approximately 55", the custom iron stand raises it just just over 5 feet in height. This 19th century Spanish Tinaja will make a unique and lovely decorative object for your home.Dimensions
