This remarkable eighteenth century (possibly earlier) pot is stamped by the makers of Fréjus, France. A rare find, as Fréjus stopped stamping their jars in the 1800s. A lovely patina has developed over time and its deep sunny yellow glazed rim still shines through. This would be perfect to hold a plant or as a special addition to a collection of French pottery.
Note: there is a a tiny hairline fracture that stops midway indicating it was created during its original firing and has been that way for centuries.
Condition and wear consistent with age and use.
