Rare Antique French White Ironstone Advertising Pot – Bocquet Moutarde Normande
This is a listing for a rarely seen antique French white ironstone double sided advertising pot for “Bocquet” mustard, dating from the early 20th Century.
Like all French ironstone pots, this is a sturdy and heavy antique advertising pot, made by Sarreguemines. It is a very rare subject, and features beautiful and intricate imagery and typography on both sides of the pot. The elaborate styling is typically French.
These old white ironstone French pots are very collectable, making wonderful display items which are also perfect for use as small bud vases.
Originally discarded, this pot has since been dig up from an old dumping ground. Therefore, it does show signs of its life underground. Most notably, there is a hairline crack running down from the top rim although this is stable and has stained and adds to the patina of the piece. There are also patches of crazing and staining all over, although this has created a unique timeworn patina. The black transfer prints on both sides are still clear, with the ‘Bocquet’ label across the front particularly elaborate.
