Antique French Pot en Gres, used long ago for making vinegar, with the typical French glaze, hand thrown. A perfect piece with country charm, brown glaze outside, light glaze inside. This 19th century urn used in the cuisines of France to make and store vinegar, in a fabulous size.
Glaze pops, wear and uneven glazing is what you want to see on these old utilitarian pieces. A fabulous decorative display piece, this huge stoneware jar or vat could be used as a hall stand for walking sticks or umbrellas, a decorative planter or just displayed as a statement piece in your interior. Of note, the lip around the cork is missing, this happened long ago, not sure who is to blame! Please only purchase this lovely object if you adore pieces with a storied past.
