Pair of White Painted and Distressed Anduze Pots, France

These wonderful painted Anduze pots were originally used in the South of France for the planting of orange and lemmon trees. In the 17th century pots like this could be found on Noble estates. The pots seen here are smaller than the traditional size, yet are still completely made by hand, in the traditional ways. The terra cotta has been overlaid with white, with the raised portions showing through. Today, these pots can be used for any type of planting or on their own as decorative pieces of pottery. It is advised to use a liner when planting in these pots (no direct planting). During the winter months, if possible, they should be moved to a covered area to protect from frost.

CONDITION: Very good painted and purposely distressed condition
