Hand-Painted Enamel Tiger Jug, Purple

  • Sold Out
Shipping calculated at checkout.

This stunning enamel jug was painted by hand in Pakistan by the renowned artisans who create 'truck art'.

Truck art is a highly decorative art form in South Asia, where trucks are elaborately customised by their owners. The detailed designs are personalised to contain elements that remind the drivers of home when they are out on the road for months at a time. Kaleidoscopic patterns feature elaborate florals, exotic animals and sometimes even depict historical scenes or poetic verses.

Collected on travels through Pakistan by a well-connected funky dude who’s business motto is ‘good shit, good prices’, these gorgeous pieces are a rare find.

Please be aware that due to their rustic nature, these pieces all have their own charming imperfections such as light scratches, chips and paint drips. Decorated using an oil-based paint, we cannot guarantee that these jugs are a suitable vessel for liquids. We like to use them as a vase, for storage, or indeed to be admired as a work of art!
