19th-Century hand thrown pottery confit jar or pot from Provence, the South of France. These beautiful antique jars were used to store duck confit, filled and buried in the cellar up to the glaze portion of the jar. This allowed the confit to be preserved and kept cool. These jars are hand crafted and painted in the lovely mustard colors of Provence. The charming small handles on the sides are called 'ears'. These jars have character, imperfections - areas of fritting and loss. They are gorgeous filled with fresh flowers, use them in the kitchen to corral utensils, rolled napkins or towels. It's one of several available.
