18th century Biot Jars

Biot Jars

Description

Details

"Biot" is a style of pottery which dates back to the 16th century, named after their town of origin, near Cannes in the south of France. 

"Jarres de Biot" are hand made from a mixture of red and grey clay. The jars are distinctive for both their shape and for the drips of glaze tumbling down them, known as "mother-in-laws' tears". The jars were used to preserve olives or store flour.

Our collection of pots are small, medium and large. All have nibbles in the pottery, a testament to their past as a household essential.

French, 18th century.
