We think these are some of the most special jars - Le Parfait, made in Auvergne, France.
Le Parfait was founded in the early 1930s in Reims, France, at Verreries Mécaniques Champenoises (VMC), a major glass-making company. With a steady production of high-quality wares and a product line that has continuously evolved to meet consumers’ changing needs and desires, Le Parfait served the glass jar market throughout the 20th century. The brand built its presence in grocery shops and general stores all around France, helping make it household name.
For the past few years, Le Parfait products have been manufactured in Puy-Guillaume, a small town of 3,000 inhabitants in the heart of France’s Auvergne region.
With Le Parfait jars, you can get creative! These simple, attractive glass jars are such a part of the French culture that they’re often used as vases or candy jars, or even transformed into lamps or terrariums.
You don’t have to be an expert to make sure a jar is a genuine Le Parfait – just look for the Le Parfait signature and the famous orange rubber seal.
About this shape:
The terrines have a slightly conical shape, making it easier to get their precious contents out.
The Le Parfait Familia Wiss terrines feature a sealing cap and a metal lid that screws. Another preserving mechanism, but an equally perfect food preservation technique!
Using for preservation:
When the time comes to enjoy your preserved creation, simply pierce the sealing cap. Top tip: after the heat treatment, you can remove the screw-top lid as it is no longer necessary for the preservation of the terrine.
