"Gourd Of Pilgrims With Dedication, Polychrome Faience Of Nevers Dated 1724"
This piece of form, dated 1724, was made for Jean MORAND, successor on August 12th, 1707, of Jean MERY, at the post of "surgeon major" of the hospital of the Invalides; Born in 1658, Jean MORAND retained his office until 1726, the date of his death, and his son, Sauveur François, succeeded him with the title of "Knight of the Order of the King" and it is thanks to the praise what did GRANJEAN de FOUCHY do to us that we can learn it; Probably offered to the savior of a soldier close to the faiencier, this gourd, very useless in the medical art, presents on one side, the surgeon in dress with lace jabot, big wig, broad-brimmed hat, sword of court with side, high belt tied at the waist and cane of honor; on the other side, a landscape "at the factory" with dedication and date; the sides and the neck are adorned with vegetal figures with blue borders and yellow stripes; the pedestal is pierced with two holes for the lace of the portage, held near the neck by two passers with green stripes. The frost, no doubt, is guilty of the breaks of the work and 7 double agraphs have contained so far what we thank them because the beauty of this piece serves as a pardon and beautifully illustrates the talent of potters nivernais.
