These wonderful, unglazed terra-cotta pots from the 30's were brought over from Southern France and they were used to catch the "Pitch" (sap) from Pine trees, for the turpentine business. There are no holes in the bottom or sides.
The effect is quite different from the usual store bought terra-cotta pots. The "Pitch" is thicker in some areas, inside and out. Each one is slighly different in size but basically measure 4 to 4 1/2" tall and the mouth is around 6" wide.
You may find an occasional old small chip on one or two if you buy a bunch of them. I have a total of twelve.
This listing is for the three pictured

Rare and hard to find, these are the real thing, not look alikes............
