Pale Green Glazed Spirit Barrel, English, circa 1880 mounted and wired as a table lamp with linen shade. Made from a mixture of red and grey clays to achieve the desired color, these jars are distinctive for both their classic shape and for the colorful drips of glaze, known as “mother-in-laws’ tears,” that occur when the glaze of one jar drips onto another during the firing process.
