Picked up this jar at auction as no-one else seemed to want it - didn’t realise what size it was but it’s HUGE, around 15in high. I’d like to know who made it - there ┬áis a stamp, ch….. pottery? But mostly I’d love to know what it is for, and the purpose of the muslin stopper in the hole in the lid? My best guess is something fermenting, to let gases escape?

The plan is to lose the lid and house a plant in it, but I’d like to find out a bit more about it first.

By Crail Pottery in Scotland.
I guess it's a potato storage pot or their version of a Rumtopf?

Thank you - that’s so quick! Rumtopf seems possible, it’s huge but I don’t think quite potato storage huge. Now I have a maker though I might be able to track down the pattern.

Spot on Naomi, Sarah at Crail Pottery has just come back to me and said it’s a bread crock. Not sure my kitchen will accommodate such a substantial storage vessel but I will find a use for it!

My husband makes all of our bread, but it doesn’t hang around long enough to need a crock of this size 😋
