Description

This is a amazing and wonderful 19th century confit pot finished in traditional yellow enamel, typical of southern France. This unique pot is in great vintage used condition. Antique utilitarian item.

It would be great to hold rosemary and other types of flowers or can be displayed as single items or in groups. It makes a beautiful addition to a kitchen or book shelf. The placement is limitless. They also make nice utensil holders.

Height: 24 cm - 9.5 inches
Width handle to handle: 22cm - 8.7 inches

***Confit means “to preserve”. These pots were used for storing cooked meats and then buried in the ground or stored in stone-lined larders.

This preserved the cooked meat without refrigeration and could then be enjoyed throughout the winter months. The bottom halves were left unglazed for burying in the ground since the glaze would normally fall off sealed in the ground.

Duck, goose, or pork, preserved in this method are often considered a delicacy. Confit d’oie is preserved goose and confit de canard is preserved duck. The meat in these dishes is moist and delicate.***
