Antique 19th Century Circa 1860 pair of  Pots de Crème attributed to James McIntyre & Co of Burslem England in the FLORA pattern

 

Pots de crème (pronounced poh de krem), is a loose French dessert custard dating to the 17th century. The name means "pot of custard" or "pot of cream", which also refers to the porcelain cups in which the dessert is served.


Measures: 4” to top of lid x 3 1/2” across to handle

Condition: Some minor scuffing surface scratches can be seen when turned at an angle in light. One pot has a tiny chip on the bottom rim.  This doesn’t show unless turned upside down. There are a couple of minor glaze pops in the clay...nothing significant and very normal for pottery of this age.
