Antique French Barbotine Cachepot, Early 20th Century

From France, this gros relief barbotine cachepot has been painted in pale pinks, greens, yellows, creams, and browns.  A certain type of clay called Kaolin is used in the making of barbotine. Kaolin allowed the sculptor to form paper thin petals and leaves. The entire process from beginning to end was painstakingly difficult. Beautiful on its own, this cachepot will highlight any area of the home.

CONDITION: Very good condition with only minor rubs to some leaves and flowers.
