Large antique terracotta flowerpot

Laurence Piron


Large two-part terracotta flowerpot decorated with owls on the foot supporting the upper part.

19th century or before.

A popular art, it is certainly a baptismal font.

The base is decorated with four owls supporting the upper part decorated on both sides, with a face of man and fantastic animals.
The heads of the owls are removable and the fixing pegs need to be readjusted.
It lacks an owl's head.

Base of the base worn, patina and wear.
The receptacle is brought to the edge.

The significant wear and old patina suggest that these Batismauts fonts could be prior to the 19th century.

The metal basin is missing.
The owl is a Christ representation.
Coming from a Breton manor.
