French Antique Pottery Confit Pot Bird Whistle Earthenware Glazed Faience
THE ABBAYE DE LA CELLE IN THE NORTH OF PROVENCE WAS CLOSING FOR RENOVATIONS AND NEEDED TO SELL OBJECTS SHOWN IN THE ABBEY FOR GENERATIONS. DO YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW RARE THIS IS? IT IS A’ONE OF A KIND”SIFFLET’. A SIFFLET WAS A BIRD WHISTLE MADE AS A TOY FOR CHILDREN. MANY SMALL VERSIONS OF USUAL HOUSEHOLD ITEMS WERE MADE FOR CHILDREN TO PLAY WITH IN A MINIATURE SIZE. TRUMPETS, CRUCHES THAT YOU FILLED WITH WATER TO MAKE DIFFERENT BIRD CALLS AND FOR PLAYING AT GAMES. POTERIE POUR LES ENFANTS’ WAS THE NAME GIVEN TO THESE PIECES. I COLLECTED A RATHER LARGE COLLECTION OF THESE PIECES OVER THE YEARS AT SMALL FLEA-MARKETS WHERE I WAS THE ONLY AMERICAN ALTHOUGH THEY DIDN’T KNOW IT! I FOUND SOME OF THE PIECES THAT TODAY, COLLECTORS WOULD LOVE TO FIND AND OWN. IMAGINE MY SURPRISE WHEN I SAW THIS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING MINIATURE SIFFLET WHISTLE…. WHEN YOU PUT IN DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF WATER, YOU CHANGED THE SOUND. MADE AS THE MOST DETAILED AND BEAUTIFUL CHILD’S POTERIE, EVER! IT HAS THE HOLES WHERE YOU ADDED WATER… AND YOU BLEW INTO THE SIFFLET AND THE END OF THE TAIL. SOMEONE HAD THIS MADE AS THE DETAIL AND JUST’THE WHOLE THING’ IS A LITTLE JEWEL. I CAN’T IMAGINE WHAT SOMEONE WOULD PAY IN PARIS! 4 X 3 IN SIZE. CLEARLY MADE IN THE JASPE OF CLIOUSCLAT FROM THE MID 19TH CENTURY. SOMEONE SHOULD GRAB THIS AND PROUDLY SHOW IT OFF! PRICE WILL NOT BE DROPPED. THIS MARVELOUS EXAMPLE OF THE’POT A GRAISSE’ IS ONE OF THE’PETITE POTS’ OF CASTELNAUDARY AT 6+INCHES THAT WAS PART OF THE COLLECTION AT THE ABBEY. IT IS IN STUNNING CONDITION, NOT USED SINCE LATE 19THC. MADE IN MEYNES, GARD. PERFECT CONDITION WITH WONDERFUL AGE. 6.5 INCHES THE SMALL SIZE OF THE POTS À GRAISSE WERE PLACED AND USED IN THE KITCHEN NEAR THE STOVE, FOR HOLDING THE JUICES AND GREASE TO BE USED FOR THE NEXT DAY. I DON’T THINK I’VE EVER FOUND ONE OF THE SMALL PETITES AT THIS AGE AND SO BEAUTIFUL IN YEARS. !!!!!! STUNNING AND BEAUTIFUL GLOW OF AGE GLAZE IN THIS CONDITION THAT ONLY CAN COME FROM TRUE AGE. REALIZE THAT THE ANSWER TO WHY THE’PETITS’ARE SO RARE? MANY OF THE PETITE SIZE CONFIT POTS IN THE KITCHEN SIMPLY BROKE FROM SO MUCH ACTIVITY. ACCIDENTS OF A BUSY AREA.
