French Jaspe Pottery   Sold  

These three country pitchers, known as jaspe pottery, are from the Savoie region of France. They date to the late 19th - early 20th century. They are all solid enough to hold liquid but show some wear to the rims as is to be expected with utilitarian pottery of this age. The hand painted designs make this pottery fun to mix and match. More pieces are available. Please inquire.

Homemade Tin Flask
  Homemade Tin Flask   $235

This handmade tin flask was clearly meant to be sculptural as well as functional. It is 8 1/2" tall including the hand carved wood cork. It has a dent on one side which does not show on the thumbnails. Unfortunately, it would no longer hold water as the lead solder has separated from the tin in one place. It remains, however, an appealing ornament.

It is difficult to say the purpose for which this sculpture of an ancient Egyptian couple was made. It may have been for a stage decoration or perhaps purely ornamental. It is made of plaster and measures 38" tall and 17 1/2" wide. Probably made in the early - mid 20th century. Good condition with some slight chipping to the paint.
