Unveiling History: Antique French 19th Century Cruche
Rare Elegance from Agen's Heart
Step into the 19th century with our extraordinary antique French Cruche from Agen, a relic of South West France. This rare piece, originally used for water, boasts a heavy Buff Terracotta body adorned with a rich brown Plum glaze. The distinctive Caramel dribble glaze, typical of the region, adds a touch of simple rustic charm.
This Cruche, designed for fieldwork, is a testament to historic French pottery. With three handles – one for carrying, two for drinking – it's a unique and rare form. Notice the potters push marks where he removed it from the wheel and the subtle mouse nibbles at the base, narrating its years of faithful service. Free of cracks, this piece is more than a decorative item; it's a slice of rustic South Western French history.
