Beautiful classic 19th C French antique earthenware confit jar, with characteristic yellow glaze (and green) glaze. This jar was hand made in Southern France, circa 1870.The terracotta pot is round in shape with a tapered base decorated with two handles at the top. Overall, this decorative vessel is in a good condition with a rich aged patinated finish. Confit jars 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 fresh. France circa 1870, weathered.
