Meer informatie

We present a large plant jar, hand-turned on the turntable, in so-called faience or tin-glazed earthenware. The somewhat grainy pâte has a white color and is coated on both the outside and inside with a light ivory white pewter glaze. The jug stands on a round base, has a belly-shaped corpus with broad shoulders that transition into a wide neck with a slightly expanding ring in the middle, to become a vertically raised concentric round flat rim. The outside is painted, somewhat naively, in glaze with grand feu colors: various shades of blue, yellow, manganese, green, black and brown. The neck has a hand-painted frieze of yellow triangles at the top. on a blue ribbon. A frieze of yellow and blue flowers with green foliage is hand-painted between the corpus and annular thickening. The upper two-thirds of the corpus is hand-painted all around, under a blue sky and preceded by a rider on horseback, with a decor of a group of running bulls, on a predominantly green painted ground, in predominantly brown, manganese and yellow with black accents. Under a palm tree and two other trees, a bull is painted separately, being chased by a rider on horseback with a long stick in his hand. In the distance, a castle is painted in yellow and blue on an elevation. Further on, a walking man is depicted with a club and a sling in his hands. We have difficulty seeing the hand-painted name “Mellano” in the grass. In the lower third is a frieze of lambrequin-shaped elements painted in blue and yellow with green and yellow leaves on the branch. The glaze layer has partly flaked off and shows the once-fired (dégourdi) white pâte of the jug. On the inside we see clear rotating rings made by hand and completely covered with the white tin glaze. The underside is covered with a coarse-grained pâte, covered here and there with white tin glaze.

Condition: partial flaking of the glaze at the bottom and slightly on the edge, otherwise good condition.
