Salve pot

Herbalists will find these salve pots perfect for salves, ointments and balms. Cooks will find them invaluable for condiments, butter, conserves and more. Straight walled pots have a simple and utilitarian shape typical of the medieval period in Europe. They are made of terra cotta coloured clay and have a clear glaze inside which extends over the lip and part way down the side. The sides and bottom are unglazed. 


Pair with waxed covers of unbleached linen impregnated with beeswax to keep contents clean and dry. Covers crimp over pot edge and will cling if heated slightly with the hand. (Covers are sold separately and are not included with the pots)

Size - 3.25" - 3.5" across rim, 1.75" -2.25" tall, approx .75 cup/6 oz. capacity. Made of red clay. Food safe glaze inside, unglazed outside. Not microwave safe.
