At first glance this looks just like an old pot for hanging on the walls. Look closer and this is actually a vintage mid-century French enamel pot traditionally used for enemas. If the idea of that rubs you the wrong way, get creative!

We think the pot makes a great wall decoration once jazzed up with some dried flowers or herbs. What about setting it up in the kitchen to store your utensils? It looks fantastic in the garden as a planter/flower pot. We also find that it's a fab conversation starter. People often don't notice what it is until you tell them.

This pot features a keyhole at the top for easy hanging, painted measurements of 1 to 2 Litres, a beautiful handle, a flat back, and a cute little spout at the bottom. It is in fairly good, usable condition with some rust along the edges and rims, the keyhole, the handle, the spout and a little on the inside, which unfortunately has completely covered up the original blue paint on the rims. But we think that's what gives it a special French country rustic charm.

Measurements:
Size of the flat back: 25.8 x 11 cm or 10.2" x 4.3"
Weight: 580 grams

We have another one of this item, slightly different but just as nice. Check it out: https://www.etsy.com/listing/109279203/vintage-french-enamel-irrigator
