French Confit Pot


In my last post I mentioned that I had purchase something recently that I had wanted for a long time.

What do the following pictures have in common?



If you guessed Confit Pots, you are right.  I finally found one that I could afford in Blowing Rock, NC.  Usually you see them on EBAY and on top of the very high price you have to pay shipping from France and hope it arrives in one piece.

I almost knocked Mr. Comforts of Home over trying to cross the store to get to this!

I wish I could get better pictures of it, but it has been cloudy and rainy out.  So here it is in my living room.




Have you ever found a certain piece that you had been looking forever for?

Welcome Home,
Penny

  1. I love it! I know my sister will too. She has a deep love for those. It looks great sitting next to your other one on top of that cabinet. I know your heart raced when you saw it for the first time!

  2. Yes, Penny...I outbid and won a beautiful piece of painted furniture at the auction Mon. night. I know how you feel about your found Confit pot. It is lovely. I love the glazed top with the unglazed bottom. Lucky you. Lucky me.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  4. Oh I love it. I have wanted one for a long time also, however the price is always way out of my budget. Yours is fantastic. Good for you. I am thrilled you found one. Hugs, Marty

  5. I love your confit pot Penny. I bought one a few years back in an antique store in California. They fit in almost anywhere. So glad you found one you liked.

  6. Oh I just love it! I have been hoping to come across some here, but no luck.
    I finally found some frenchy chairs at a yard sale and a copper boiler, I shared recently.
    I am on the hunt for a french market cart, going on many months. :)

  7. Yes. It was a buffet mirror I wanted for above the piano. Doesn't quite have the same value as your wonderful pot. I have no idea the value of the pot as this is the first I've heard of them. Of your photos, I loved the colors of the rooms, but did not guess pots.

  8. Oh, girl. I would have been knocking someone down to get that, too. I have been wanting one for years.

    Great find! Love it.♥

  9. Whoa. Looks great, Penny. But you obviously have never lived in an earthquake zone (like the West Coast) or you wouldn't be so sanguine about putting the confit pot on top of the armoire!! But it does look great there. Enjoy your new find. Hugs, Carol

  13. Hi Penny

    Oh goodness - what a fabulous find. The pot is perfect with your beautiful French pieces. It was meant to be that you found it in the shop and I hope that you find more.
    Have a lovely day.
    Blessings,
    Erin

  18. Your poor husband...he probably didn't know what hit him. :o) It's beautiful Penny. I finally got a demijohn but I'm still not convinced it's the real thing. I could afford it though so I'm thinking positive! Great find. My power came on about 5 pm. I am so happy!

  20. It's a beauty Penny - thankfully K wasn't injured in the run for the pot, tehe!!!!!

    I loved them at the brocante in France but no way was I going to risk shipping home - guess it's time to start treasure hunting again now I'm back for a while!! Also, I plan to paint my armoire with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!!

    Bob's b'day today and he's in NH - I'm missing him. Guess what I bought him, some of that wonderful Illy coffee you shared with us - and I'm drinking it!!!!!!

    Hugs - Mary

  21. Its a beauty Penny. I always find something I love in Blowing Rock. Wish I had found some great piece in France, but I didn't.

  22. What a great pot, I can imagine your eyes lighting up when you spotted it. My exciting find was a big McCoy mixing bowl, not that unusual but it was priced at under $10 and I was thrilled.

  24. It's lovely, Penny!
    Yes, I've had a similar experience. Years ago I was always on the hunt for just the perfect copper bed warmer. When I found it I grabbed it and wouldn't let go until it had been paid for and stowed safely in the car. It hangs beside the fireplace to this day.

  29. Yipee! Good for you Penny. I saw that WS has some on their "Found" section. I couldn't believe the prices they are asking for their "Found" pieces. Makes my stuff look like REAL bargains. LOL

    I love copper, so whenever I come across a beautiful copper tray or decorative piece, that I can afford, I get giddy! :)
