Enormous French Stoneware Pot with Lid. Kitchen Storage Jar.
This is an enormous, French, stoneware pot with lid. A gorgeous accent piece for a period kitchen/ rustic farmhouse. Excellent for storing kitchen utensils or as a planter.
It is handmade, and therefore has a charming, slightly uneven, surface texture and rough glaze style. It has a glossy glaze, the inside of the lid and lip are natural, unglazed clay. It is stamped "Made in France" and "B" for "Grès de Bonny" on the base. This pottery, based in the Loire region of France, started manufacturing in 1881 and finally closed its doors in 2014.
Salt glazed, with two handles, and lid. It weighs 2.4kgs/ 5.3 lbs.
This pot stands 21cms/ 8¼" tall (with the lid), is 16cms / 6¼" diameter (at the base) 20cms/ 7¾" wide to the handles. The opening is 12.5cms/ 5".
In excellent condition, still watertight and clean. Utterly charming, it has odd ''nibbles' and undulations in the clay and glaze, and some flaws and gouges that were present at the firing and glazing stages. "Aged to perfection", it has no chips or cracks. Authentic and original, it has many, many years of service yet to offer.
