Desvres Large COCKATOO PARROT 10 in. Fourmaintraux Courquin French Faience c1890
Fourmaintraux Courquin French Faience c1890. This rare and whimsical French Faience Antique Fourmaintraux COCKATOO PARROT. Is in the form of a bird perched on a plinth. Has a subject matter of a whimsical COCKATOO PARROT on a plinth. Is modeled in deep relief- the modeling, decorating, and glaze are well done with typical colors of Desvres pottery: creamy white background decorated with varying shades of blue, yellow, green, aqua, and orange. Has glass paperweight eyes. Has a concave glazed bottom on the underside; the foot rim is unglazed. On the underside there are two makers marks: stylized markings in a blue glaze of FC and a 10. These are early marks of Fourmaintraux Courquin, old and original French Art Pottery, hand made in the Desvres region of France at the Fourmaintraux Factory, circa 1875 to 1900. Dimensions (in inches): 10.3 Tall X 5.0 Wide X 7.2 Deep. The estimated date is circa 1890. This French Antique Desvres Fourmaintraux COCKATOO PARROT is in very good condition: as noted, there is a bit of roughness to the green glaze on the back of the bird- this is from the original making and not damage. Please see all photos which are a part of this description. Condition status includes minimal normal wear and rubbing, glaze losses, firing flaws, crazing, and fretting. Overall, this work is sound, having no other chips, cracks, or major defects, and having had no apparent repairs or restorations. Please note; photos have been taken in indirect sunlight; therefore, reflections and lighting spots may appear, but do not necessarily indicate defects. This is Desvres style fine country French art pottery. This style includes production techniques whereby tin glazes and decorations are applied and worked in stages upon a modeled terra cotta pottery form and fired several times in a kiln. It is noted that French Faience is not inherently “perfect” – larger pieces were still hand made in this era and as such have marks like little dents in the pottery which are glazed over. This is not damage- this is part of the history of old pottery and how it was made. Please bookmark this work; Listing Category and List Price are subject to change.
