Pair of 19th Century French Barbotine Cachepots with Floral Motifs by Onnaing
Decorate your mantel with this nice pair of colorful Majolica planters from Onnaing. Created in France, circa 1880, each antique vase is round in shape with scalloped rim, handles on the sides, and features hand painted floral and leaf motifs in the pink, yellow, pale green and brown palette; the inside is fuchsia color painted. Both cache pots are in great condition and are stamped on the bottom 783 with Onnaing crest (hairline crack from aging on the bottom of one – see last image)
The Onnaing Faiencerie was founded by Charles de Bousies in 1821 in the village of Onnaing, France. During the second half of the 19th century, the Mouzin brothers bought the factory and ran it until the factory closed in 1938. It was nearly destroyed by the Germans during World War I, but production restarted in 1921. The factory made mostly Majolica pitchers and planters. Onnaing designs included flowers, geometric patterns and famous historical figures, among others. Each design had a number and a corresponding model name. The marks “Frie Onnaing” and “Made in France” indicate that it was made after World War I.
