Green Confit Pots

Price is per individual item

A trio of 18th-century confit pots. We bought these beautifully weathered confit pots in a market in South West France. "Confit" is French for "to preserve" and little pots like this one were used for preserving food. The green coloured pots were used for meat. They were then stored in a cool place - usually in a larder but sometimes buried underground! Confit pots have a very pleasing shape, with two small handles and a plump round body. The green glaze on this one is extremely attractive and in wonderful condition for a domestic item. Confit pots make lovely ornaments or small planters. Part of Violet Grey's collection of antique pots, planters & urns.
