BAC à LAVEMENT

9-5/8" to top of be-ribboned back, 9-3/4" across handle, 5" deep, lion spout juts forward another 1-1/2". A magnificent piece intended for delicate personal use: it was meant to hang on the wall, with a rubber tube to be attached to the lion's spout. The interior water tank is marked with levels up to 2 liters. From the HB faïencerie, ca. 1880 (see our book p.73), in incredible perfect condition.

PROUD SWAN JARDINIERE

10" long, 8" high, the flared opening between the wings roughly 5" x 6". A fine 19th century piece with distinctive manganese coloring. In superb condition for its age (one tiny glaze flake on left side of base), the interior shows the wear of many years of active plant use but is ready for many more of the same! This is not a Quimper mark, although it is certainly a mark from one of the other major French faïence centers; this piece shows the quality of the finest productions of the 19th century.  

$450, plus shipping.
