Small Biot Jar
Attractive small 18th biot jar
"Biot" is a style of pottery which dates back to the 16th century, named for its town of origin, which is near Cannes in the south of France.
"Jarres de Biot" (biot jars) are hand-made from a mixture of red and grey clay. The jars are distinctive for both their shape and for the drips of glaze tumbling down them, known as "mother-in-laws' tears". They were used to store flour and preserve olives. This jar has a particularly nice rim, and it's a really appealing example of the style.
It would look lovely as a vase for dried flowers, or used in the garden as a planter.
French, 18th century.
