Yellow Ground Pottery Wine Cooler. This listing is for a beautiful antique French pottery wine cooler which can also be used as a chache-pot (planter). This piece dates from the 19th. Century and the bright yellow ground of this faience piece is typical of the south of France (Marseille and Montpellier) where this piece almost certainly originated. Measuring 9″ high and 12-1/2″ across (the underplate). There are a few small chips and scuffs along edges (see pictures), but really those are very minor. There is no other damage (no cracks or hairlines) and there have been no repairs or restoration. A really stylish and eye catching piece! Please excuse any glares (white patches) that you may see in the pictures, these are caused by reflections of light on the glaze and are not on the actual object itself.
