Vintage French Sugar (Confiture) Jar
This is a wonderful vintage French stoneware Confiture (sugar) jar that is 4 1/2 inches high and 4 inches in diameter at the base. The cork rises 1 1/2 inches above the rim of the jar. The cork is 2 1/2 inches in diameter. The label, Confiture, is shown as bold 1/2 inch tall black letters.
The upper 2/3's of the jar is glazed with in a shade of brown, while the bottom 1/3 of the jar has not been glazed over. The jar is hallmarked on the base with the number 500 and a symbol of an anchor with an arrow crossing in a circle with the letter EML. The condition is very good. There are indentations in the stoneware at the base, but are original and should not be considered breaks, or nicks.
