Quick Overview

Collection of Antique French glazed terracotta confit pots in very nice original condition (priced individually depending on size and condition - please call the shop for availability as stock is constantly changing).
These pots were used primarily in the South of France for the preservation of meats such as duck or goose for dishes like cassoulet or foie gras. The bottom halves were left unglazed, due to the fact that the pots were half buried in the ground to keep the contents cooler and fresher. Chips and imperfections help authenticate these pots as they were utilitarian type pieces.
