This water jug is part of the pieces traditionally made by Sezinando Fernandes Ramalho, one of the last 5 potters to use the ancestral technique of making black pottery in Bisalhães, a technique registered as a UNESCO World Intangible Heritage Site. This water jug has been used in Portugal for over 500 years.
- Typically Portuguese, this water jug remains functional and can be used to serve olive oil or wine but it is also a very original decorative object.
