Enormous Rare 18th C French Terracotta Biot Pot
In all our travels, we have never come across a Biot Pot this large and in such wonderful condition. Dating to the early 18th C, it ticks all our boxes, from its creamy color to its butter yellow rim glaze to its lightly weathered patina. Please note that most of these photos were taken on a gloomy day and so the pot appears much more grey in color than it is in person. Photo #2 shows this pot flanked by two other large ones, and is more representative of the true color. These pots make an elegant statement around a pool or in a large foyer, and are magnificent in a grouping, perhaps by the entrance to your home on in a courtyard. Please note that because Biot pots are glazed only on the interior and rim, they are not suitable for overwintering outside in cold climates except if emptied and covered. While we can drill them to function as planters, we recommend a custom fiberglass lining that we can have made for you. Be wary of any Biot pots of this size that are considerably cheaper. There are tons of knockoffs out there, but we guarantee the authenticity of ours.
