Vintage French Large Pickling Jars
Just like gran had.
We love how handmade glass has that off-kilter lean with flecks and bubbles dotting the surface. It’s glass that has personality. It’s got feelings. And we have a lot of feelings about these large vintage pickling jars, light-blue-toned beauties that have put in years of pickling work and are now in need of a good retirement home. Imagine this: You could fill them up with broad bunches of pale-pink peonies, or happily nodding bouquets of ranunculus. Or you could create a multi-layered terrarium with stone, sand and succulents. Perhaps you have a collection of vintage wooden spatulas in need of a similarly-aged container. And hey, you could always go full-on gran, fill it to the brim with peppermint candies and leave it by the door.
All items from the Food52 Vintage Shop are final sale. Items may vary slightly from what is pictured.

Our Tips & Stories
How we'd use this beauty in our own homes.
Plus, other magical tips to keep them looking fresh.
You'll be hearing from the staff at FOOD52 every week in Too Many Cooks, our group column in which we pool our answers to questions about food, cooking, life, and more. It was a truly beautiful weekend in New York. Between Easter, Passover, and the sunny weather, everyone had something to celebrate. We documented some of our fun moments -- some related to food and some not. Inspired by the fabulous lunches in Christopher and Melissa's Canal House newsletter (check it out if you haven't already), we thought we'd start sharing the best discoveries from our food lives.
