French Duck Confit Pots

French duck confit pots….Nowadays we look at the pots and we admire different textures – glazed, unglazed, partially glazed, mustard yellows, bright yellows, or even rare shades of green. We use these pots for flowers, adding an element of style to kitchens, to give this “instant Provençale” look.
