Origin France

A large botijo style vessel, most likely built for ornamental purposes.
Botijo’s were used before refrigerators to keep water and other liquids cool. As the liquid inside evaporates through the porous clay walls, it keeps the outer surface cool, therefore keeping the contents cool. They have been used around the world for centuries and their revival is being encouraged as a sustainable alternative to cooling water.
