In a nutshell: This small cup is ideal for placing under your vinegar pot or barrel to collect any drops of vinegar that might drip out.
In France, it's called a 'godet' (cup) and was traditionally used for putting single escargots (snails) in when serving in bistros and brasseries. We use them not for snails (although we've been tempted!) but also for quick nips of vinegar and other fine spirits as needed!

We have sourced our impressive stoneware products from one of France's oldest surviving ceramic manufacturers in Burgundy. Founded in 1875, they still make the mustard pots for Maille and other familiar kitchen items, such as yoghurt pots, water jugs and terrine bowls. Using clay sourced in the Loire valley, Auvergne and Burgundy, the products are handmade by artisans. Fired at a very high temperature (1250°C) then fixed with some unique glazes which makes them non-porous and perfect for storing liquids and for cooking.
