Ceramic jar that makes reference to the shape of the albarello vessel, decorated with blue flowers, leaves and a cartouche in the centre with the words “Aboca Erbe”.
A sophisticated item that will enhance your home with a touch of elegance and refinement, in whichever room you place it.
This precious artistic reproduction represents a historic and cultural testimony to the past and a genuine acknowledgement of the noble art of the ceramicist Maestri of the School of Montelupo Fiorentino, created exclusively for Aboca by the Ceramiche Leona pottery.
The Aboca project, an exploration of the profound bond between man and nature, is helping to recover the wisdom of ancient craft techniques.
For this reason the production of items is entrusted to the expertise of the masters of the art reviving the centuries-old tradition synonymous with Italy throughout the world.
The Albarello was a typical pharmacy container. It is characterised by its particular cylindrical shape, wider at the base and at the mouth, reminiscent of a bamboo cane. This is particularly significant because in ancient times drugs came from the East in bamboo canes.
Its origin is Persian, but the albarello has always been an emblem of medicinal spice blenders as the tanniferous glaze used for producing majolica makes the item completely impermeable, useful for long and effective storage of medicines.
