19th century LARGE French Confit Pot Yellow Glazed Pottery Provincial Farmhouse

~Direct from France~
~YES, we saved a few of these confit pots from our last container and are offering them to our internet customers!~
~And for those of you unfamiliar with confit pots, here’s a little info:

Confit is the French word that means “to preserve”.
In southern France in the mid 19th century these mustard coloured pottery vessels were used to store meat such as duck and goose. The meat was packed in duck fat (lard) which served as a preservative (this was prior to modern refrigeration).
The confit pots were then sealed and stored in cellars, usually partially buried in the ground; hence, no glaze on the lower part of the pots.
“Confit d’oie” is preserved goose and “confit de canard” is preserved duck.

~This large confit pot has traditional yellow glazing on the handle and on the top third, with the lower part left unglazed, as is the tradition. Lower bare clay has a nicely aged patina~
~Fully glazed interior~
~Rustic primitive antique condition with nicks and parts of the glaze cracked and missing; normal drips of glaze. Definitely expect imperfections due to the age and handmade nature of this pottery.

Today these pieces are in high demand as French country/farmhouse decorative statement pieces. This one would be a great start or continuation to a confit pot collection. Own a part of the French countryside's history and tradition!
~circa late 1800s~
