Huge 16" tall Italian wine pitcher, circa 1600's. Embellished with decorative figures, animals, leaves and flowers of the period.  Originates from Northern Italian wine region of Tuscany.  Perfect fit into Clarkdale and the Copper Art Museum since we are the center of Arizona's wine country, the artifact is made of copper, and it holds at least 2 gallons...
