Deco or art de la table?
This large ceramic ashtray can be transformed into a bezel or a serving dish for aperitif: here’s a very refined Moustiers faience piece. Enjoy it daily as a catch all tray on a coffee table, or use it to offer treats to your guests.
It’s shaped in an original way with a border in braces that succeed one another. Four beautiful decorations are proposed. The bird-like decor is the oldest and most traditional, in shades of green, yellow and blue. The "Fleur de paradis" and "Fleur de lotus" patterns are more contemporary, and created especially by this manufacturer who’s holding the French label "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant". The colors are bright and enhanced by the whiteness of the faience. A finishing edge underlines the dominant color of the depicted scene.
A faience of France
The village of Moustiers Sainte Marie is known for its many artisans who still perpetuate the tradition of Provence earthenware. This piece is handmade and decorated in the famous pottery village, and signed by the craftswoman on the back. It is unique like all the creations made by art crafters. This object is timeless. It’s made following the faience tradition of the village and will seduce you in the long term.
