Set of 63 Original Antique French Confit Pots & Water Jugs

Set of 63 Original Antique French Confit Pots
Yes, it is true! You are seeing 63 pieces of antique French pottery all in one place. My buyer's were working overtime when they stumbled upon this assembled collection of pots and jugs. Pots de confit were used primarily in the South of France for the preservation of meats such as duck or goose for dishes such as 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. Of all the antique confit pots, those having a green glaze and those of which are small or petite are the most valuable, sought after and difficult to get. Usually found as singles or in small collections, having an entire set of 63 with 2 scarce green ones and several petite and very small is just like having a dream come true. Don't miss this opportunity of a lifetime. Each numbered pot or jug shows the height in inches at the bottom for that specific item.
