FOURMAINTRAUX Seated Man Salt Antique French DESVRES Faience c1 905 Rare & Whimsical. This is a rare and whimsical French Antique Fourmaintraux Seated Man Salt made in the Desvres region of France. The subject matter includes a man with a period patterned jacket and waistcoat, breeches, and slouch cap; he is seated on a stool, his hands on his lap, with a double handled basket in front, and a large basket on his back. The bottom underside is glazed; the foot rim is unglazed in the brown clay typical of the Desvres region. There are two makers marks: markings in a blue glaze of FC and a 70. These are early marks of Charles and Francois Fourmaintraux c. 1900- 1905, old and original French Art Pottery, made at the Fourmaintraux Factory in the mid to late 19th Century. The modeling, decorating, and glaze are well done with typical colors of Desvres pottery: creamy white background decorated with bright blue, green, brown, lemon yellow, and magenta.
