Antique English Confiture Pot has everything we love about antique stoneware. Once held cook's prize winning Marmalade, with a bit of wax and cloth cover tied over the top. Before refrigeration, preservation was so important, heavy pots like this were cherished in country kitchens. With a well "buttered" finish, which means the original glazed finish has patina, craqueliure, darkening and aged mottled finish. Divine!
Stunning decorative piece, objet d'art for your French Country home. Made to store preserves, use this as a decorative pot, display as a work of art in your kitchen. It will happily hold herbs, flowers, lemons, olives and other food items too. A fantastic addition to your collection! Marked on the bottom, Made in England.
