Good condition with some damage, namely: each elephant has had a 2-inch break loss to one upper side of the rim on the howdah (saddle) (Photos #11 & #12); on one howdah back end there is also an old restoration repair (Photo # 12). Please see all photos which are a part of this description. Otherwise, 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. Tall X 8.1 In. Wide X 3.5 In. Please bookmark this work; Listing Category and List Price are subject to change.
