A beautiful and rare, 19th Century, Castelnaudary grain pot.
These pots were handmade using a mixture of red and grey clays to achieve the desired colour. The distinctive drips of glaze known as “mother-in-laws-tears” were created during the firing process, when one jar drips onto the other, making each pot completely unique.
This particular pot has the original Castelnaudary stamp (as illustrated on the pictures) and stunning patina. It would look beautiful as a garden planter or as a feature in the home.
French, 19th Century
Material: Hand-Crafted Earthenware, Glazed.
There is an old and very good repair to the top of the pot (as illustrated on the pictures) which seems to add to its charm.
Dimensions: H: 48cm / W: 39cm / D: 39cm
