French Green-Glazed Castelnaudary Pot/Planter
We love the intense green glaze of Castelnaudary planters, and this one is all the more beautiful for its chipped surface that shows various hues of pink and white beneath the green. Of medium size, this piece would be best grouped with our smaller pair of Castelnaudary pots (CPO 1039) or our larger polychromed Anduze pots (CPO 1034 and CPO 1035) and potted up with herbs or lettuces for an unusual display. French terracotta pots that are glazed on the outside were meant for planting, so these can stay outside in harsh climates if emptied of soil, elevated on feet so the drain holes stay open, and covered for winter. This one, however, is not so large that it can't be brought inside, which is the safer option.
