Antique French Faience Veuve Perrin Teapot With Lid, Chinoiserie, Gargoyle Spout. This is a most charming antique French faience teapot by Veuve Perrin. It is an early piece, late 18th century to early 19th century. The teapot has several unique features: its gargoyle spout, its unusual shape, and a handle composed of three letter “C’s” in different sizes. There is whimsical chinoiserie decoration in an emerald green developed by Veuve Perrin by using low temperature firing techniques. The designs are outlined and highlighted in black. Note the scene around the teapot. As a young man runs away with a bird, looking over his shoulder, while an older figure reaches out helplessly. There is a minor chip on the base which can be seen in the second picture. No other condition issues. The lid has a bud finial and applied leaves. The bottom of the pot has a connected “V” and “P”, the symbol of Veuve Perrin. The height is 9 inches to the top of the finial and the width is 6 inches at the widest point.
