This is a stunning antique French Confit Pot dating from around 1880 in really good condition.

It is semi glazed with a rare green glaze and in truly wonderful vintage condition. The glazing is missing in a few places because these pots were made to be used. They were an essential part of the kitchen in the 1800's in the days before refrigeration. The inside is glazed with a pale yellow glaze.

This pot comes from South West France and would have been used to store cooked duck during the winter months. The duck would have been cooked and then wrapped in duck fat and placed in the pot. The pot was then placed partially underground in the soil up to the line of the glaze, where it would be stored for the winter.

These pots are getting harder and harder to find, once they are gone they are gone forever as they are fabulous antiques from a bygone era. This pot is in exceptionally good antique condition for something that was used as an everyday item. I have tried to show clearly in the photos what it is like and an defects. It has no cracks and has never been repaired. But please do look at the photos carefully.

This particular pot measures 26cms high (10.25") and 18 cms (7") diameter excluding the handles.
