What’s an 0live Jar Worth? August 29, 2011
Many of us seem to be discovering antique olive jars these days. I’ve developed a fondness for them. They’re from Spain, Greece, France…anywhere olives are grown…and many are over 100 years old!
Costs $285? The shop I found this one in has a twin and they’re both on these neat iron stands. The shop is a collective and the owner wasn’t there, but I guess I need to ask him/her for more information. Maybe they’re reproductions? If they are, they are surely good ones…at least from my perspective.
I’ve been trying to do some research on-line, but so far, each site I visit is selling instead of educating. Just between you and me, if I was selling a $2600 French olive jar, I’d tell you why it was prices at $2600 and not $285!
Do you collect olive jars? Do you know of a place I can go to learn more? Should I go grab the olive jar for $285? It would be so lovely here at our casita!
Have a wonderful week!
