Antique Alsatian Pottery Terrine with Lid

This 19th-century casserole found me in Strasbourg when I visited a wonderful old gentleman's booth filled with treasures from his grandparents' home and barn! My french was still at beginner's level but I understood the passion he had for handmade Alsatian wares and the stories contained with the patina. While this piece of pottery will no longer be preparing traditional meals, there are so many other things she can hold in your kitchen. She begs to be displayed on a table filled with fruit or fresh veggies and she would look splendid on your open display shelves. A wonderful deep aged brown glaze can only be created by time.  She is rustic and her perfection comes from her imperfections.

9 1/2 inches in length

6 1/2 inches in width

5 inches in height including lid handle
