French 19th Century Biot Jar

Description:
An early 19th century French stoneware Biot jar, the classic over-weighted bottom form named for the Provencal pottery town of Biot (near Cannes) where these jars were made dating back hundreds of years. .

Originally used for the storing and transporting of both oil, flour and other dry food goods, the interiors were typically glazed with the honey color that you see here which extends and spills over to and decorates the rim; the numerous holes around the rim would have been used to secure a very light sheer fabric cover to keep flies away. The jar also has a decorative incising around the shoulder.

This particular Biot served for many years as a planter in an English garden with the bottom having been drilled to allow for drainage.

Measurements: 31" height
Price: $1,650
