This is a stunning antique French terracotta Confit Pot dating from the late 1800's in really good condition.

It is one handled pot which are harder to find than the two handled pots and it is in wonderful vintage condition. 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. I am fairly sure that originally this was half glazed on the upper part of the outside too which has completely worn away over years of use more than a century ago.

This pot, which comes from locally here in the South West of France 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 halfway, 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 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.

This particular pot measures 21.5cms high (8.5") and approx. 20 cms (7.75") diameter at the widest part excluding the handle.
