Tiny pot à bouillon w/ yellow glaze - 19th century - 4¾"

SKU: 18096

A superb yellow-glazed terracotta pot à bouillon from south west France. Dating from the late nineteenth century, it has the number 2 written into the clay, indicative of its size. 

This little pot has a big history!

It is from the Cévennes region in south-central France. It was used by silk makers who worked in teams to produce silk from silkworms in a building known as a magnanerie. Workers were served bouillon (a broth) for their lunch - quite a regime! It would have originally had a lid.

A rare small-scale pot that will make a lovely addition to a collection of antique French pottery.

Condition and wear consistent with age and use.
Approx. overall 4¾" high x 3½" diameter
