Listing Detail Tabs

Beautiful vintage ceramic pot in beige with a green glaze. XL size - this was made as a bread crock so used for storing bread or sometimes potatoes. Would look special on display in a kitchen or living room but could also be repurposed and used as a large plant pot!
There is one similar but made a couple years earlier on display in Te Papa.
Made by Timaru Potteries (stamped on the bottom) and dated in pencil 1944 July.
The pot is in very good condition but with one larger chip (approx 2cm x 0.5cm) as pictured. The lid however is not original - I presume the original one broke somewhere along the line and this one has been made from wood as a replacement. It's quite interesting and has a bunch of notes on the inside - e.g. "10lbs 4-5-68 $2.05" and also a very faded recipe for "Seed Mixture".
Measures 28cm tall by 22cm diameter, and the circumference is 82cm at the widest point.

This pot is quite heavy - pick up preferred but can be sent at the buyers risk and cost.
