The coastal Tunisian town of Nabeul was first settled by the Greeks in the 5th century B.C. By the Roman era several centuries later, Nabeul had already developed a reputation as the center of Tunisia’s pottery industry. The artisans who make our festive pitcher continue that tradition in a studio near the Mediterranean Sea.


Each pitcher is formed on a potter’s wheel using white clay imported from Portugal. Next it’s fired to create a bisque—a piece of smooth ceramic that is ready to be glazed. Finally, artisans paint the designs freehand, without using machines, stencils, or decals. No two pieces will be exactly the same. As a pitcher full of sangria or orange juice, as a vase, or as a beautiful serving piece on display in a china cabinet, our Tunisian Hand-painted Pitcher is a one-of-a-kind example of a traditional Tunisian craft.


Handcrafted in Tunisia. Approximately 9 1/2"H x 8 1/2"W including handle. Holds approximately 60 oz.


Dishwasher- and microwave-safe. Not intended for freezer, oven, or stovetop.

Anyone fortunate enough to have traveled in North Africa can attest to how delicious the traditional tagine is. Both the name of the cuisine and the name of the dish that is used to prepare it, tagine is a Berber meal that often includes meat or poultry, a mix of aromatic spices, and additions such as raisins or dates, preserved lemons, and almonds—all served over couscous. The base doubles as the serving dish, and removing the cone-shaped lid at the table always makes for a dramatic and mouth-watering presentation.
