  • About dealer
An attractive example of an 18th-century Biot jar. "Biot" is a style of pottery which dates back to the 16th century, named for the town where they originated, near Cannes in the south of France.

"Jarres de Biot" (biot jars) are handmade from a mixture of red and grey clay. They are distinctive for their shape and the drips of glaze tumbling down them, known as "mother-in-laws' tears". They were used to preserve olives or store flour.

This one has some minor frost damage on one side(hence the price) and would be best used inside as a decorative item.
CONDITION

Minor scratches, nicks and scuffs consistent with age and use
No major losses, cracks or structural damage
Slight surface wear and variations in colour due to weathering
This jarre has some minor non structural frost damge to one side which is reflected in the price. We would therefore recommend that it is only used internally for decorative purposes.

Dimensions: 

  • H: 81cm (31.89in)
  • D: 48cm (18.90in)

Period: 

1780’s

Hello I'm Caryl Tincknell, and I want to help you create a wonderful outdoor living space.

I started Violet Grey in 2010, but have been sourcing vintage garden salvage for much longer then that. Violet Grey grew from my own love of garden design, and from all my experience of foraging for the most exciting vintage garden accessories.

A DIFFERENT SORT OF DECORATIVE GARDEN SERVICE

The main difference between us and other architectural salvage and antique dealers is our holistic approach to your garden. We don't just sell statement pieces - we want to help you create your perfect outdoors living space, one that suits your lifestyle and reflects your tastes. I'm always here to advise and guide.

Your garden is an extension of your home. It can be an inviting place to relax or entertain, just like the indoor rooms in your house.

HOW WE FIND OUR GARDEN ANTIQUES

Vintage garden accessories have become extremely popular; and gone are the days when you could simply go on to eBay and pick up a bargain! The challenge these days is finding the right stock, and that's how I can help you...

Every month, I spend a day in the Paris flea markets, and a further few days at fairs elsewhere in Europe, tracking down fantastic antique and vintage garden furniture and accessories. The rest of the time, I'm busy searching

HOW VIOLET GREY WORKS

We don't restore the garden antiques that I find, although if we need to, we'll carry out light conservation or repair work. Once the item is ready, we photograph it, and it's uploaded immediately onto our website and social media.

However, I think that what really makes Violet Grey work is our real love for what we do. I have a genuine passion for making outdoor spaces beautiful, and will guide my customers towards the right look, as opposed to simply selling objects.

If there's anything else you'd like to know about Violet Grey and our collection of garden antiques, please don't hesitate to contact me.
