PAIR OF LATE 18TH CENTURY FRENCH CONFIT POTS
W: 26cm (10.2")H: 29cm (11.4")D: 23cm (9.1")
A stunning and extremely rare pair of half glazed confit pots from L'Aude in the South of France. Turned upside down in the kiln during the firing process, caramel drips rain down the sides. The bottom halves were purposely left unglazed as these pots were half buried in the ground to help keep the preserved contents cool. These 18th century pots display a slightly richer caramel colour and patina than their 19th century equivalent.
