French 19th Century Green Glazed Ceramic Confit Jar


Green glazed confit jar, France 19th century

Beautiful confit jar. With green glaze they are extremely rare. Confit jars were used primarily in the South of France for the preservation of meats such as duck or goose for dishes such as cassoulet or foie gras. The bottom halves were left unglazed, due to the fact that the pots were half buried in the ground to keep the contents cooler and fresh. for sale in Pottery & Kitchenware | Tresors Trouves
