ANTIQUE1870s FRENCH ALSACE SALT-GLAZED STONEWARE POT with COBALT BLUE DECORATIONS
This a beautiful antique French pot (I believe this to be the French version of a canning jar) comes from the Alsace region of France. It's utilitarian ware, impressed with the number 4 quarts? , though the bottom "leg" of the 4 didn't get completely impressed. Has a handle on either side for carrying (looks more like a thick pumpkin vine than a handle), and a thick lip on the top for a wax seal; then a muslin cover would be tied over the opening with twine, for extra security. Unmarked, so I don't know who made this.

Gray glaze with lovely, though somewhat faint cobalt blue decorations. Perfect for collectors, French country style, holding kitchen utensils, or just for its own beauty! Unsure of maker; from the 1870s. Could use a good cleaning; has one very old shallow hole on the body, that looks like an embedded pebble fell out. 8" tall x 10 1/2" wide at the handles x.

7 3/4" in diameter across the mouth x 6" across the base. NOTE: As of January 27, 2013, the United States Postal Service significantly raised their rates again up to 21% on some services!
