19th Century French Hand Painted Ceramic Barbotine Wild Boar Pitcher
Porcelain collectors will love this colorful, Majolica water pitcher in the shape of a warthog. Sculpted in France, circa 1890, the artful ceramic jug features a boar sculpture wearing a bib emblazoned with the words “Tout En Est Bon De La Tete A La Queue” (all is good from head to tail!). On either side, the vase shows a vignette in relief with a laurel leaf border and embellished with geometric and star decor. The antique pitcher is in very good condition commensurate with age and use. The vase has a painterly, watercolor style and is painted in neutral earth tones, including brow, yellow and green. This sculptural pitcher is featured in the book “Pichets en Barbotine” by Maryse Bottero page 164. (See last pictures).
