Manufacture de Digoin preserving jars
£29.00 - £38.00
Heavy salt glazed stoneware storage and preserving jars for wet and dry foodstuffs, goods, or bread. Hand made in the northern Loire valley by Poterie Digoin, founded in 1875 in 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. A choice of ‘Mat’ brown or pale ‘naturel’, each in 0.5 litre or 1.0 litre capacities. The 0.5 litre measures approximately 11.5cm high by just under 10cm diameter; the 1.0 litre about 15cm high by 11.5 diameter.
