"Large Nevers XVIIIth Ceramic Gourde / Bottle , Wine Thema"Large talking 18th cty Nevers ceramic gourde / bottle , with funy inscription "Vive Baccus et La Mour, Chaqun A Son Tour" (about Wine and Love, 2 essential passiosn on life to be happy !...)
Condition: it stay rare to find these large models of ceramic gourd (folk art) without missed, broken or restored neck or handles
Some enamel lacks on the collar and small others 4 handles
The main contribution of Nivernais ceramists is not on XVIIIth cty quality (enamel, decor, ...) but mainly curious and funny themas' originality, and in particular those referring to the life pleasures like wine and women .
Please check my account for an another similar thema with a Nevers pitcher with Loire boats and 2 wine drinkers in front of barrels deisgn
