Typical vinegar jug from the Haute Savoie region of France with rounded shape and lateral handle. The narrow opening with its small spout received the “leftover” wine that, with time and the action of natural yeasts, turned the contents to vinegar. According to Buttin and Pachoud-Chevrier in “La poterie domestique en Savoie”, green jars were most often produced in the pottery in Vanzy in the first half of the 20th century.

Height 28 cm – Diameter 20 cm

Bibliotheca Culinaria began as a specialized publisher providing books to Italy's professional chefs. Our curiosity regarding culinary history led to an interest in material culture and the many tools and objects that relate to agriculture, cooking, and dining.

We've assisted restaurants, pastry shops, and hotels in locating unusual items for their decor and are always delighted to add to a collection of kitchenalia. We welcome the challenge of assembling groups of objects for maximum visual impact. Our stock, largely Italian and French in origin, encompasses a range of materials and eras from Alpine treen to French majolica, from copper pots to Murano glass.

We find objects that display signs of use to be particularly eloquent. Handling them, we are reminded of the lasting impact of simple quotidian gestures and they return us to the particular convivial atmosphere of past times.
