medium size, green glaze.
Globular shape, foot scarcely marked, neck with hemmed edge, two flat handles well digested hollow.
Pottery Brissard, Eure Valley, Normandy, nineteenth.
Popular Folk Art pottery intended to receive the "drink" (wine, cider, calva ... sometimes mixed with water), to take it to the fields, to the market, to the fair.
The pottery of Brissard are in great quality, rather solid, because they were intended for everyday use in rural areas.
Rosy ocher earth, beautiful large gradient green flow, traces of drops and touches (contacts with other pottery in the potter's oven, and indicating the position of the piece in the potter's oven), traces that create an aestheticism "telling" the story of pottery, from its manufacture to its use.
Good condition. Egrenure minimal on neck and foot, a leap of cooking enamel on the body (small pebble remained in the ground before cooking and causing a burst of earth when placed in the oven), a small fel (not visible) on a handle.
The Brissard potteries have been the subject of several exhibitions, including the Castle-Museum of Traditions and Norman Arts of Martainville, the Museum of Terroir and Country of Conches Ouche, and Heritage Days at the Hunting Lodge in the forest of Abondant (near Dreux, current city of the Royal Family of France).
