Small Beaume Pot

A beautifully decorated small Beaume pot in wonderful condition.

This is a piece of French social history as well as a fantastic planter!

These round-bellied pots come from Beaume in France, and were used to preserve food, usually meats and pates. You can still see the small holes in the top where a muslin would have been secured with small sticks, to keep away flies.

The pot would have been made on a wheel, with the pretty detail around the rim added later. These days, it would look wonderful displaying flowers or foliage, or simply as a table centrepiece, perhaps in a garden room.

French, 19th century.
