Giant “Ali Baba & 40 thieves” jars
Giant “Ali Baba & 40 thieves” jars : These two antique terracotta jars from North Africa were hand-made traditionally then had a paint finish applied that was deliberately burnt to give a striking blackened patina. In an arid non-freezing climate they would be suitable for exterior, otherwise they are for interior use. Although at first glance they form a matching pair, in fact they are different sizes.
