A century ago, terra-cotta pots like this one were used to collect sap from trees throughout the French countryside. In the winter, wine growers would drop a hot coal in each sap-filled pot and place them under the grapevines to fend off frost damage. We think they're perfectly sized for growing herbs and starting seeds, and the visual evidence of their utilitarian history only adds to their charm. Authentic found object from the early 1900s, collected from flea markets in France. Made from terra-cotta, weathered and marked by time and use. Sizes and details will vary slightly; each of these found, vintage items is unique. The pots do not have drainage holes. Approx. 4" diam., 4" high. 1lb. From France. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
