Bird Lidded Jar
Fitch & McAndrew
Bird Lidded Jar by Fitch & McAndrew is inspired by the Wassail pots made in Wales and the West Country during the 19th Century. These were celebratory vessels used at Wassail time, traditionally the twelfth night of Christmas, which were filled with cider and carried to the orchards where singing, dancing and merriment ensued. The cider was then poured over the roots to 'bless' the trees so that they would produce a good crop the following season. This is a one-of-a-kind ornamental piece.
