This is a vintage Henriot Quimper faience water jug or wine pitcher with a lid. It has the traditional Breton woman on the side and is highlighted in blue.It has a floral/leaf design on the side as well as on top of the lid. It measures just over 8 1/2" tall and is around 7 3/4" across from spout tip to handle edge.
It is good pre-owned condition for its age. It has some flea bites on the rim and base.There are some paint flakes on the handle and spout revealing the red clay. It has the usual glaze skips/bubbles as well as some paint skips. There is also some crazing. There is a bit of gold paint transfer on the handle from something but I believe it can be removed.
It is simply marked on the bottom "Henriot Quimper - 88". Please see all the photos as they are part of the description. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at any time.
