French antique "conscience" from Aubagne (19th century).

"Consciences" were used to keep and carry olive oil.  Originally made circa 1850 in Aubagne, Biot, Salernes or the Gard region.  The story goes that the pottery would be filled with olive oil and given to the workers at the end of the olive season; or was given to the homeless in villages.  In both cases, this gift enabled to provide a "good conscience" :)

Dimensions: 13" x 13" x 10"
