18th Century Rare Large Terracotta Hand Carved French Biot Pot

About

This fabulous handmade terracotta pot originated in the Provençal town of Biot and was used to store olive oil. The interior glaze that extends to around the rim was used to prevent vermin from climbing into the oil inside. In perfect condition, the photos show the pot in sunlight. These pots make an elegant statement around a pool and are magnificent in a grouping, perhaps by the entrance to your home on in a courtyard.
