Item #C303

Origine:
Meynes, France


Circa:
1800s
Debut de la 19es

Details:
The Cruche de Barque is possibly the rarest and most coveted form in this genre. This Cruche de Barque was made in The Languedoc Poterie-ville of Meynes but in the Provencal form! Incredibly rare.. These were ingenius objects, used by fisherman to keep water on the boat throughout the day when they were out at sea (Marseille, Sete..etc.). As two direct metal cylindars of equal balance were placed in the 'terre cuite' as the Potier made the Cruche, one in the spout and one in the base, this kept the Cruche from tipping over on the unpredictable waters of the Mediteranean. Many were broke thus....unless you know a Collector, you would be very lucky to find one of these wonders in the finest Shop specializing in 'Terres Anciennes' in France. The prices tend to run very high based on the beautiful condition and the fact that besides the collections of some collectors of J&V, there are no Cruches de Barque in the US and France! This one sits at 11.5 inches.
