Pair of French antique terracotta resin harvesting pots.

I bought this lovely pair of French 19th century resin harvesting pots from the Aquataine region of France. Resin was harvested in this area which has miles and miles of beautiful pine trees. A tap is placed on the living tree trunk and the pots would be used to catch the tree resin as it is slowly harvested from the tree. This process is repeated regularly on the same tree until the tree is 'tapped out' - hence the saying.

The pots were hand made from terracotta and still show the remains of old resin from their previous life. One of the pots has a small crack and there are age related chips. The pots are not a regular shape - see photos.

They can make lovely flower pots, but they also look gorgeous with pine cones or other pretty pieces spilling out of them to make a lovely decorative display.

Welcome to Restored2bloved, a small family run business that has evolved from a passion for sourcing beautiful vintage and retro pieces to create a unique, nostalgic and interesting feel to my home and garden.
My style is strongly influenced by cottage gardens, rustic country homes, brocante and shabby chic. I love things that are both beautiful and practical and find that vintage items can add so much colour and personality to your home. I am a keen gardener growing mostly cottage garden plants and I love using vintage pieces to provide interesting and beautiful  planters and vases to display flowers in the home and garden.

Sourcing stock is a brilliant and exciting part of the job, I love finding that perfect piece for the shop. Each piece is an original vintage item, sourced from varying locations in England and France. My other passion is restoring or revamping beautiful pieces of furniture, bringing them back to their former glory so they can be used and loved in their new home.
So that's a bit about me,  I hope you enjoy browsing in the shop and if you buy something I hope you love it as much as I do.
