Peharas are pitchers that were used to bring water from the fountain to the house. Women came home from the fountain or the spring with these pitchers on their heads.
However, this is a model twice as small as those used at the time!
We have large Peharas in store in Saint Jean Pied de Port, contact us if you are interested .
