Christmas Fair - Pots


You want a pot? Look no further. Come to Menton. Every December the area near to beach and the Bastion is covered in pots of every shape you could dream of - they come from north Africa - I think probably Morocco and are part of the Christmas Fair which is over to the right of these photographs and which I'll show you another day.

You can see Cap Martin in the distance in the first two photos and in the third photo, you'll recognise the steeples of the Old Town.

  1. Happy Sunday, Jilly! That is quite an array of pots. I think that I'd be tempted to buy more than one! Looks like a beautiful, sunny day, too.

  3. So that's where all the lovely pots we see around Menton come from! Too bad clay can't survive Boston's winters...

  4. Jolies photos. Are the pots expensive. I was a potter for over ten years in Belgium before coming to Montpellier.

  6. Like Marie, I wonder how expensive they are...Some of them are huge - I wish you'd stand next to one, so we can gauge the size ;-)

  9. If there are Aladdins in all those pots...looks like all you need now is the Widow Twankey.

  10. Wonderful photo, so many pots, how long do they sell them for? one day, or a few days?

  11. I don't know the prices of the pots but don't recall from last year that they were very expensive. Most are unglazed which means they won't be as strong as glazed pots. At least I think I'm right in thism so perhaps the price is reflected in this.

    Great to know you were a potter, Marie.

    And Isabella, if you look at the first photo - the pots on the left are banked up against a bench - just a normal park bench - so perhaps that gives you an idea of the height of the pots.
