I'm telling you right now, this bowl or jardiniere is a delicious wreck. Mixed in with some stunning antique confit pots, this utilitarian piece of pottery was made a long time ago. There are chips, there is glaze loss, there are parts missing. The three holes in the top rim indicate it was hung, either as a planter, or in the cuisine of a French home to hold onions and other root vegetables. Something about it caught my eye, and I couldn't leave it behind.
The bowl has the same delicious and distinctive golden colored glaze as the tians from Narbonne, France. The condition is as shown, I love these old, old pieces no matter what condition their appearance has, the damages reflect the life and provide character, but please only purchase this if you do, too. Use this as a decorative French Country accent, line with antique linen, serve bread, fruit, or simply display filled with a collection of shells, or wine corks, or whatever else you collect. The intricate trim has broken pieces, the very bottom most likely had a finial which was broken off long ago. See what I mean? Nevertheless, this French Bowl speaks volumes, it's led a rich life. Measures 10" in diameter x 5~1/2"h.
