"Large Glass Jar Of The Grésigne, Late Seventeenth Century."
It is in translucent blue-green glass with beautiful bubbles and a return socket (bearing a beautiful trace of empontillage) characteristic of the Grésigne.

Rare object to meet in this format. Note a small crack at the shoulder. The price takes into account, this type of object can be negotiated up to 3500 €.
