Highly collectible faisselle pot from Alsace (Eastern France). This charming Alsatian piece of pottery (hand-made and hand-painted), dating around 1940’s, come from many different villages throughout the region. The dark brown “terre vernissee”, or glazed pottery, with its decorative flowers, comes from the village of Soufflenheim. A faisselle is a container pierced with tiny holes (as this piece), in which fresh cheese is placed so the whey will drain out. But then metonymy came into play (or perhaps came in to play) and the word now also designates an unsalted soft curd cheese sold in such a container, itself nested in a larger, bucket-shaped tub. This clever contraption allows the whey to flow freely around the cheese, keeping it fresh and moist. And when you want to use the cheese, you simply lift the inner rack from the tub, and decide how much of the liquids you want to keep, depending on the consistency you're looking for. Good condition (No cracks, no chips). h-7/ w-9.25/ d-7.25. We ship from Texas (not from France)
