Beautiful antique weathered ochre yellow confit pot from southern France with a lovely patina that makes it one of a kind. The little patches where the glaze has worn show off its age and add to its authenticity.

Description

This is a very old antique French confit pot in a beautiful ochre yellow that has developed over time and has the most wonderful patina. It is made of earthenware with small handles at the top. It has a hole in the base for drainage and has a few small cracks commensurate with its long life that do not detract from its beauty. These pots were used in many different ways in a French country kitchen. Most often they were used for preserving meat such as duck confit, or other foods that needed to be preserved. The pots were buried in the ground of French cellars to keep them cool. We found this beautiful little pot near Montpellier in the South of France and it would be lovely in a kitchen or as a characterful display piece.
