Description Green glazed confit jar for storing duck meat and fat. Most of these jars are only glazed on their top halves and insides. This was to save money. The glazed yellow interior of the jar held the meat and fat. For storing, meat needed to be kept cold, so holes were dug in the ground and the jars were partially buried. Since the lower half was sunken below the earth, the lower exterior did not need to be glazed. Notice the variation from piece to piece. No two jars are exact matches!
