These large antiqued Anduze pots have been beautifully finished with a touch of matte cream over terracotta and purposely distressed. They are adorned with garlands and fleur-de-lis, and have splashes of glazed-over green paint near the Anduze markings. Originally, in the 17th century, these types of large pots were used for planting lemon and orange trees on properties throughout Southern France. Today, they can be used for any type of planting or on their own as decorative pieces of pottery. These are completely made by hand, in the traditional ways. 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.
The base diameter is 18 inches.
CONDITION: Intentional distressed finish with minor chipping. Please see photos.
