Pair of Large 18th Century Anduze Jars
Pair of large 18th century Anduze jars. 'Jarres d'Anduze,' signed by maker, Henry Gautier, and dated 1790. Sold together as a set for $16,000 pair. These jars are robust inverted bell-shape forms adorned by garlands and medallions, atop round pedestal bases. Remnants of green, brown and ochre yellow glaze embellish their surfaces. Their design is a product of many different crafting traditions centered in Provence and Languedoc, and its development is linked to the production of citrus fruits that need to be brought indoors during the winter to prevent freezes, and therefore not to be planted directly in the soil. The earliest known dated Anduze jar is from 1782 and signed by a member of the Gautier family. Considered elegant pottery, similar Anduze jars, decorate some of the most beautiful houses and castles in the south of France. While originally intended for the ornamentation of gardens and terraces, today these jars look equally stunning within interior spaces - perhaps flanking a doorway or on a landing.
