Thank you berry much.

Wait till you hear the story behind this rare collection: It goes back to 1847, when Stanislas Renault first opened his workshop in Argent-sur-Sauldre, France. One move and 173 years later, the Poterie Renault business had stayed in the family for five generations, continuing to handcraft iconic stoneware from French clay (and even fire it all in the original kiln). Sadly, they’re closing their doors—but not before we were able to snap up a treasure trove of vintage pieces. We brought them here just for you, and they’re available exclusively at our Shop.

Fun fact about this find’s fanciful shape: It comes straight from France, where it’s traditionally used to serve up cider made from local sour apples. So why do we call it a Berry jug, you ask? Well—quick history lesson—it’s actually a nod to the Berry side of the Renault family, who crafted stoneware gems like this one from grey clay for five generations. Whatever you call it, one thing’s for sure: With its amazing durability (it’s microwave and dishwasher safe) and that gleaming salt glaze all over, this lil’ vessel is our new go-to for juice, savory sauces, fresh bouquets, you name it.
