Greek Honey Pots
These beautiful pair of white washed Tzar urns (also known as honeypots) were made in the Peloponnesus region of Greece in the villages around the town Koroni. They were handmade and built up level by level by about 5cm-10cm a day. The definitive ribs were added separately to provide additional strength. They were used to store olive oil and vegetables but the water content in the clay made them unsuitable for wine.
The bulbous shape maximised the storage capacity and indicates they we made in the mid to late 19th century. They all look as good in the garden as they do in the home and make great statement pieces.
