Oil Bottles of St. Onge
Les Bouteilles de saintOnge
Item #P3

La Rochelle, saintOnge, France


These bottles for storing oil, called 'SaintOnge Bottles' or 'Bouteilles de saintOnge, could be found throughout areas of Aquitaine along the coast. Perhaps this influenced this unique green that is almost an unearthly aquamarine glaze color. I've always found the poteries de saintOnge to have a sense of mystery as after all, this small area was not far from the land that Merlin and the Knights of the Roundtable roamed. Thus it would be fitting for these pieces all to have a special 'Je ne sais quoi?'. The form is close to a long narrow tubular shape that opens as it reaches the top near the handle and spout, a primitive shape like the plongeon. It was used for centuries to store oil not only from weather and the elements and vermin...but also the effects of the sea. The Bouteilles are not found in the U.S. very often but when they are, it is usually a singular stray. It was to my surprise, in going to France in 1990, that I learned of the different sizes and how many people of the region had kept them in sets. En fait, there were 5 sizes ranging from 7 - 24 inches with the largest size only made on demand and the smallest, often vicitm to the passage of time. Jaunes et Vertes,at present, has four of the 5 sizes available. We have assembled many sets of 3, 4 and even one set of 5 for many private clients. The look is breathtaking.
