The highly collectible confit pot is the perfect accessory to any space, adding a subtle touch of French beauty. We love them at Anemone Interiors them because they're beautifully rich in colour, with an interesting history. 

The aged terracotta and yellow glaze is an unmistakable combination, well recognised in Vincent Van Gogh's Sunflowers piece.

To those who want the most iconic French style with just one accessory, the confit pot is for you.

The History of The Confit Pot

The history of confit pots is a long one and they are still used today to preserve food. For centuries, French country kitchens would make use of these beautiful pieces made from clay or other materials. This pot was once an essential in any kitchen before refrigeration became available for preserving foods. Today you can find them on display at some stores where their striking colors will catch your eye but what sets them apart from all others?

French country cooks would immerse either goose or duck meat in their fat and slowly cook it for hours in the pot. After cooling they would bury pots of this delicious dish deep into the ground cellars to keep them fresh - a time-tested solution to preserving food.

Most confit pots only have glazed tops, as the unglazed pottery would keep meat cooler. The depth of the plate usually indicates how deep it was meant to be buried in the earth.
