This medium French confit pot is in the traditional yellow colour on the top half and white or unglazed at the bottom. It is made of earthenware with small handles at the top. Unlike some of the other pots we have for sale, this pot is not quite as old (approx 30-40 years) and is marked St Jean de Fos which is a pottery town in the Cevennes in southern France. 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.
