FELIX POTIN

PARIS

This extremely rare pot is the perfect choice to enhance your advertising pot collection or the perfect piece to start your new collection. It is in good clean condition with a few fairly large chips on the bottom.  There is also a chip on the upper rim along with a crack that extends down a couple inches.  The transfer is a brown “Sepia” color.  This pot would have contained some kind of sweet confection.   Please consider the images as the best part of my description.

Félix Potin, the French Godfather of modern grocery stores, 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 pot depicts the image of this factory.  He went on to become a pioneer of modern mass distribution and an extraordinary success story, with a company that lasted for over 100 years.

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 package.  I work hard to find the most economical shipping options available by checking multiple discount carriers.

I will credit any overpayment of postage charged to you after finding the best shipping option. I check both ParcelMonkey.com and Shipgooder.com for the most economical delivery to save you shipping dollars. These companies negotiate better rates with USPS, Fed Ex and UPS than individuals can on their own.
