Beautiful MULTI COLOR Transfer Design with images of both production locations-  This pot displays very well in good condition.  There is a small chips to the base of the pot and a stable hairline along the side.  Overall crazing appropriate for its age, beautiful creamy white coloring and very clear transfer.   A gorgeous, rare pot.

Some history of Felix Potin:
Félix Potin opened his first shop at 28 rue Coquenard in Paris in 1844, at the age of just 24. … In 1860, he opened the first two-level, large-area retailer on the Boulevard de Sébastopol in Paris. The following year he constructed a Félix Potin factory in La Villette, in the northern outskirts of Paris.

 

 

This wonderfully charming pot is the perfect choice to enhance your advertising pot collection or the perfect piece to start your new collection.

Please consider the images as the best part of my description.

Most pots have some level of crazing, may have spots of discoloration, light hairline cracks and minor chips and fleabites that only add to its character and do not detract from its display value.  These are expected due to age, use and let’s not forget they were often buried for decades before being dug up and rescued.

Perfect to store pens, flatware, paintbrushes, candles, cotton balls, plants or anything you can imagine.

I offer substantial savings in shipping costs when multiple items are combined into one larger package.  I will credit any overpayment of postage charged to you after finding the best shipping option.
