This is an enormous, French confit pot / storage jar. It is a gorgeous accent piece for a period kitchen / rustic farmhouse. Excellent for displaying kitchen utensils or as a storage jar for walnuts / chestnuts etc.
It could be re-purposed as an umbrella stand in a country manor entrance hall!
It is handmade and therefore has a charming, slightly uneven, surface texture and rough glaze style.
This pot is in excellent condition, perfectly clean. It has no chips.
It is utterly charming, with odd 'dints' and undulations in its thick, glossy, glaze. It has a few 'unglazed' spots and light surface scratches, consistent with its age and use, giving it a fabulous authentic patina.
It has a small clay 'hairline' crack at the base. I have photographed it, from the inside and outside, so please see the last two photos. It appears to have been present at the firing and glazing stages, so was a result of the manufacturing process.
Its natural 'chestnut' color makes it the perfect accessory for French provincial interiors.
It has many years of service yet to offer.
It is really heavy and weighs 5.4kgs / 12 lbs! It stands 27cms / 10½" tall, is 23cms / 9" diameter (at the base) 34cms / 13¼" wide to the handles. The opening is 18.5cms / 7¼".
