Fermenting or storage bottle
£31.00

A 1.2 litre salt glazed heavy stoneware bottle of a type used for the fermentation of fruit wines, flavouring of cordials and liqueurs, storage of oils, and historically as bed warmers. Hand made since 1875 by Poterie Digoin, in the northern Loire valley, an area rich in clay and silt mineral deposits, but as importantly at a major junction in the French canal network, whose distribution allowed the nascent pottery to quickly establish itself at the heart of the French kitchen.
