The faience pottery of Provence is an ancient production, which has followed rigorously all the manual steps from modeling to finishing, including firing and drying time. The manufactory from which the ashtray comes is recognized as "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant", French label of excellence.
The decor is painted by hand. The motif "Fleur de pomme de terre" is very characteristic of Moustiers Sainte Marie faience since the 17th century. It’s proposed in blue in monochrome version, in the center of the ashtray. The outline is underlined by a fine and very worked frieze. For a delicate Provencal touch in your house decoration!
