Vintage French Stoneware Spice Jar
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.
We could tell you about this jar’s eye-catching details, about how it was handcrafted in France from grey clay, or about the salt glaze that gives it its soft shine...but, well, we think this vintage gem speaks for itself. It’s got a handy lid that’s ready to protect whatever’s stashed inside. Fill it with any spice you wanna keep within arm’s reach, or use it to store your coffee, tea, or sugar—it’s plenty roomy for that, too.
