Antique French Pottery Crock

28.00

An essential item for any home that wants to add a bit of French styling are antique crocks. I love their patina. So many stories wrapped in their simple and varied glaze. They are both beautiful and useful. They hold utensils by your cooktop. They can be pressed into service for a holder of fresh flowers. They organize an artist’s studio.

This beauty came to me by way of a brocante in southwestern France. Small crocks were used to hold duck confit, olives, or spices. I love its size. Small but not too small. It has imperfections in its glaze that have been there since its production. I will note a very aged chip on the top rim. It does not detract from the crock’s charm but I do want to point it out in the photo. As they say - the beauty of an object is often found in its imperfections. Such is true for these wonderful old pottery crocks from France.
