Pair of Small Salt Glazed Stoneware Jars

Shipping calculated at checkout.

A pair of small Edwardian salt glazed stoneware jars, most likely used for ink or furniture polish.

 

Salt glaze is characterised by its rustic, orange-peel texture and is created by throwing salt into the kiln at the higher temperature firing stage.

 

Sodium from the salt reacts with the silica in the clay to produce sodium silicate. Salt glazes are often colourless or can be various shades of brown. 

 

Victorian and Edwardian salt-glazed stoneware was mainly produced in Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Nottingham and London. 

 

Dimensions:

 

Small jar 80mm tall with base diameter of 45mm (3.1 inches tall, base diameter 1.7 inches)

 

Tiny jar 50mm tall with base diameter of 35mm (1.9 inches tall, base diameter 1.3 inches) 

The Hygge Factor

These rustic little jars are beautifully timeworn, so have a softness to their colour and edges.

 

Perfect for wildflower stems or fine paintbrushes.

Vintage Salt Glazed Stoneware Jars

I love these little vintage stoneware jars. I bought them to use as water containers for painting, but I may just keep them for cuttings of single flowers from the garden.
