19th Century French Herb Pots

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

I have purchased a large collection of French herb pots that date to the 19th Century. These very small pots were used to store dried herbs originally. I find that they are also great for jams and jellies or olives or nuts on an antipasti board. There is an indention near the top which was used for securing a piece of fabric over the small jar. These jars, being hand made, vary in size slightly and there are minor differences in the glaze color. There are minor chips on many of the jars on the upper rim. The jars are priced individually.
