Why We Love This

In the south of France, pitch pots were used to collect sap from pine trees for the manufacture of turpentine in the early 20th century. As the resin built up within the pot it created a unique vessel of its own. Base measures 2.5"Dia.

About Chez Vous

Captivated by decorative flourishes discovered while wheeling their toddlers’ strollers through European villages, architect Karen Dunning and husband Lee founded Chez Vous in 1996 to bring a bit of that aesthetic to American homes. Handpicked offerings range from fun and funky to lovely and semi-precious. Chez Vous definitely doesn’t take itself too seriously. This down-to-earth approach to hunting and gathering decorative treasures results in incredible finds at incredible prices.
