I have a clay jar that was originally used to transport

Customer Question

I have a clay jar that was originally used to transport olive oil from Italy to England, and from there it was sent to Jamaica West Indies where I obtained it. It has the initials CG on it, which identifies the origins of the olive farm. It is approximately 32 inches long and 22 inches wide at its widest, I understand it is from the period of 1700. Any value ? Thanks

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the mark

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Great, thanks. You can send images at your convenience. No rush - there is not a time limit here.

I am wondering if you are still interested in having your item assessed?

Please let me know and do you have requested images available?

I look forward to reading back from you.
