The rich history of this 19th-century confit pot is etched into its beautiful patina. Once used in southern France to preserve meats like duck or goose for dishes such as cassoulet or foie gras, this antique pot is now a decorative piece of French heritage. The lower parts were left unglazed, as the pots were half buried in the ground to keep the contents cooler and fresher. Ideal for displaying wild flowers or left empty on a shelf or tabletop.
