description

A jar is a container or vessel with a wide neck and mouth and one or more prominent handles, with or without spout and a height of less than 35 cm. The relationship between height and diameter can be 1/1 to 2/1. It is a word coming from the Andalusian Arabic «ǧárra», and this in turn from classical Arabic. Traditionally made of clay or earthenware, the jars can be made in different materials and elegant designs (ceramic, glass, metal, plastic, etc.). As a table service they have evolved from the useful to the ornamental.
