Antique French Pottery Pot Confit Glaze Earthenware Provencal Ironstone Faience
THE WORLD’S FIRST THERMOS. A CRUCHE WITH THE SPOUT AND THE DRINKING SPOUT ON OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE VESSEL. THE WORKERS IN THE HOT SUN OF THE SOUTH-WEST COULD DRINK WATER FROM THE CRUCHE AS IT SAT ON THEIR BELT UNTIL THEY REACHED THE WORK AREA. THE WATER WAS PROTECTED BY THE THICK GLAZE AND CLAY GLAZE AND THE FACT THE OPENINGS WERE TO THE SIDE AND THEY VERY SMALL KEEPING THE WATER COMPARABLE TO A COOL BASEMENT IN THE SUMMER. THIS GARGOULETTE IS THE RAREST FORM IN UTILITARIAN OBJECTS. IT DATES BACK TO PERSIA WHERE IT MIGRATED FROM AFRICA INTO THE IBERIAN COUNTRIES. THE GARGOULETTE HAS NO TOP BUT TWO SPOUTS. IT WAS THE RAREST AND MOST COVETED FORM. ONLY USED AROUND THE HOME FOR COOL WATER. THE SIZE IS 14 X 13 AND IT IS STOUT IN THE CENTER TO THE POINT WHERE I COULD ONLY IMAGINE THE VACUUM IN CONSTANT PRESSURE TOWARDS AN EMPTY VORTEX. THE COMPLEXITY THAT SOME POTTER, MORE OF AN ARTIST, TOOK THE TIME TO SOLVE SO HE COULD CREATE ANOTHER OF THESE’TOP’ GARGOULETTES… THE GLAZE WAS FIRED THREE TIMES TO CREATE A EXTRA STRONG PROTECTIVE LAYER COVERING THE POURUS CLAY OF THE REGION OF’THE HERAULT’ TOWARDS PERPIGNAN. WHEN YOU SEE IT IN PERSON… YOU’LL UNDERSTAND JUST WHAT I MEAN. We always offers the same quality of excellence that make us the premier experts of’Terres Vernissées’ in the US. If you want one of the true antique forms of this genre… The French would go’fou’ as the many collectors in the U. IT IS A MASTERPIECE THAT WEIGHS… IT IS ALSO A VERY FORMIDABLE SIZE.
