SOLD - Southern French Yellow Glazed Terracotta Confit Pot with Two Handles, circa 1850

SOLD - A French yellow glazed terracotta confit pot from the mid-19th century with two handles. Born in France in the early years of Napoleon III's reign, this confit pot features a typical yellow glaze in its upper section that drips delicately down to the unglazed portion of the pottery. Traditionally used in Southern France to preserve duck or goose into its own fat and make it into various succulent dishes such as foie grass or confit, the pot was buried in the ground up to the glazing line. Its double handles allow it to be moved more easily. With its nice proportions and rustic appearance, this French confit pot circa 1850 will bring a touch of tradition and authenticity to any home.
