19th Century French Hand Painted Ceramic Barbotine Pig Pitcher Onnaing Style

About

This colorful, antique water pitcher was crafted in Northern France, circa 1880. The jug, titled "Cochon au Jambon" (pig with ham), features a pig sculpture with a laurel leaf crown carrying a ham, and embellished with a sausage link handle. The figure has wonderful facial expressions and a unique shape. The playful pitcher is in excellent condition and has rich colors throughout including a pale pin skin tone and green details. The farm animal subject matter is a Classic motif of French country style. This piece is pictured in the book "Pichets en Barbotines" by Maryse Bottero page 69. (See last two pictures). 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. Best known among Onnaing Majolica are his pitchers with pigs or roosters. Measures: 8" W x 4.5" D x 8.25" H.
