SKU: 18453

An exquisite off-white preserving pot from Martres-Tolosane (southwest France). Dating from the late nineteenth-to-early twentieth century, this would look superb with a collection of antique French blue and white pottery.

The commune of Martres-Tolosane in southwestern France has a centuries-old tradition of pottery production, dating back to Roman times. During the Middle Ages and Renaissance, the town became renowned for its distinctive red clay ceramics, prized for their durability and craftsmanship. Martres-Tolosane's pottery industry thrived, producing a wide range of utilitarian and decorative items, including plates, bowls, jugs, and tiles. One notable aspect of Martres-Tolosane's pottery heritage is its production of blue and white glazed preserving pots. These pots, with their solid blue or white glaze, were used for storing and preserving food items. They became particularly sought after for their practicality and simple, yet elegant appearance. While the town's pottery industry did evolve over time, adapting to changes in technology and market demands, its traditional craftsmanship remained a hallmark of Martres-Tolosane's ceramic heritage.
