Pottery Brissard, Eure Valley, Normandy, nineteenth.
Popular pottery intended to receive the "drink" (wine, cider, calva ... sometimes cut with water), to take it to the fields, to the market, to the fair.
The pottery Brissard are of good quality, rather solid, because they were intended for everyday use in rural areas.
Rosy ocher earth, wide beautiful moire green coulure, traces of drops and touches (contacts with other pottery in the potter's oven, and indicating the position of the piece in the potter's oven), traces that create an aestheticism " telling the story of pottery, from its manufacture to its use.
Good condition. Egrenure minimal neck and foot, a leap of cooking enamel on the body (small pebble remained in the ground before cooking and causing a burst of earth when placed in the oven), a small fel (not visible) on a handle.
The Brissard potteries have been the subject of several exhibitions, including the Castle-Museum of Traditions and Norman Arts Martainville, the Museum of Terroir and Country Conches Ouche and Heritage Days at the Hunting Lodge in the forest of 'Abundant.
