Artisnally made from local clay, known as grès in France, these vintage lidded primitive pots from France are so useful for storing smaller items in the kitchen or around the house and perfect for display. 

They were used to supply butter, they would have had the maker's label on and been tied with string. They were kept and used over and over again. 
 

They are primitive in finish with rough textures and uneven glaze. Inside is a creamy glaze. They are in good vintage condition, with signs of use and age, but perfectly useable. 

 

The smaller pot 15cm or 6" across the handles and 8.5cm 3" tall and is marked size 2

The larger pot  measures 16cm or 6.25" wide and 10cm 4" tall and is marked size 3
