Pair of 19th Century French Barbotine Cachepots with Bird and Floral Decor

About

This pair of colorful, hand painted Majolica jardinières was sculpted in France, circa 1870. The antique planters are almost square in shape with scalloped decor around the edges. Each porcelain cachepot features exquisitely rendered hunt and floral motifs on all four sides. The scenes include guinea hen, wheat, flowers, leaves and tree branches. Both planters are in excellent condition, and decorated in a rich color palette with green, light beige, red and blue. These home accessories would make a great addition to a lodge, ranch or hunting resort. Probably Onnaing or L'Hermine a Orchies. La Faïencerie d’Onnaing in northern France was controlled by the Mouzin family in the second half of the 19th century. The pottery produced Majolica from 1870-1900. Clays were imported from England, Germany and Belgium to supplement local supplies and producing a ware that was somewhat lighter than that of other potteries. The color palette of glazes used at Onnaing was somewhat duller than competitors and was often applied in a haphazard manner. The two brothers L'Herminé Declercq, Emile and Joseph, set up a ceramic manufacture in Orchies (in Flanders), in 1886. Emile already owned a pottery factory in nearby Belgium, in the town of Rebaix, but wanted to expand his output through a joint venture with his brother. It is worth noting that Orchies was situated close to the famous ceramic centre of Saint-Amand-les-Eaux where the Moulin des Loups factory had been based since the 18th century. The company started producing Majolica at the end of the 19th century and by the early 1900s produced over twenty humorous Majolica jugs including modelled animals including cats, dogs, roosters, pigs and more rarely the braying donkey jug and squirrel jug. The company is only known to have produced few toby jug designs depicting three quarter length rather than head and shoulder figures and these are hard to find today. Measures: 11" W x 11" D x 9.75" H.
