An example of this form is illustrated in Jacques Mompeut, Les faïences de Moustiers, p. 51, where on the opposite page, the author states that the form is 'pot à usages divers, ou confiturier' [pot for different uses or jam pot].
There is some minor and typical chipping and /or glaze chipping along the upper rim edge and the edge of the base, some of which have been painted over. One has an approximate 3/4-inch chip to the rim, a very small flat chip to the base and another small chip to the rim of the base. The other also has a small chip to the edge of base.
