Italian glazed olive oil jar signed and dated 1935. More correctly called amphora jars, which originated from the Neolithic Period between 9000BC to 3500BC. Amphorae were used primarily to transport olive oil and wine. Interior designers and most antique dealers simply call these large Italian olive oil jars. For us, they are a piece of sculpture and can be used in the home or the garden. The earthy color palette and the sheen of the glaze really make the Italian olive oil jars a thing of beauty.
