These 22 ceramic snail shaped cups fit into two oven proof dishes (there are 11 snail pots on each dish) and originally a snail was baked in each pot covered with a lovely sauce of garlic, butter and parsley. The perfect 'oven to table' dish, allowing you to cook and serve from the same dish, without needing to transfer the snails, keeping all the flavor of the cooking juices and giving you beautiful presentation at the same time.
Whilst these pots can still be used to bake snails if you wish. They are perfect little pots for serving individual portions of homemade chutney alongside cheese. They are also great for salt and pepper or little pots for sauce.
They have so many other possible uses. They make excellent little flower vases for table decor. They can be tiny planters and are the perfect size for watercolour artists to use as mixing tubs or for washing out their brushes. You could also decorate your table using them as little candle holders. They could be displayed on platters of olives, to pop the stones into. So many uses.
Some are more caramel color than others that are more creamy beige. They are all in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The glass dishes are marked 'Henkel, Arcopal, France' on the base.
The oven proof dishes measure 17cms/6½" diameter and are 5cms/2" deep.
The individual snails measure 5cms/2" long x 3cms/1" deep, the openings are 2 - 2.5cms/¾"-1" diameter.
Each dish with 11 cups weighs 700gms/1.5 lbs.
