These pitchers were treasured and necessary in everyday life. This one is old and has a beautiful aged, light-colored patina with a twined fiber handle for carrying. Scrap metal was often used by the natives to repair the pitcher so that it would extend its use by the tribe. This pitcher would be a lovely addition to your shelf or favorite table.
