Origine
Salernes, Provence

Circa:
1880's

Details:

The Pichet de Provence is the rarest pitcher form to be found in this region as it was only made in a sliver of the area between Salernes in the Var and Aubagne near Marseilles. The pichet was used daily for drinking cider and would sometimes be put to use as a wine pitcher, en plus! The pinched bec with the large circular rim coated in a cream glaze was considered a feat of creativity when the Potieres of the mid-19thC were continually coming up with new creations to keep 'au courrant'. This popular form was a keeper in Provence! They ranged from 7 to 15 inches and were glazed in a stunning brick-red glaze as well as some rare glazes in green and pale yellow.
J&V has retrieved some more of these pichets from a collector who lives near Salernes and they are exemplary. This one we present here is from a lot with the rare distinction of having the mid-q8thc form which had a bulbous center that is more pronounced than other pichets of the early-mid 19thC. A beautiful examples of this form at the medium size of 10 inches. TOP condition and one of the most beautiful that J&V has ever found with a 'beyond emerald' green. It has the perfect combination of a wonderful authentic air of use and time and terrfic condition! Not found very often in the U.S. nor Provence....their numbers are sadly fading at known antique centers..as collectors keep them locked up in their armoires.
