This ewer is a handsome example offlambé glazed French art pottery from St. Paul de Vence in Provence. The overall dark chocolate brown glaze has been topped with a caramel glaze and then a final white one, both of which have foamed and dripped and swirled to create an eye-catching pitcher. The shape is distinctive, also: an arched scrolled handle, quite thick; a pinched spout and a bulbous body tapering down to a round pedestal base, covered with a high gloss clear glaze. The foot ring is dry, but the signature on the center bottom--ST PAUL in black--is glazed over. We're estimating that it's from the 1960's or 1970's.
The ewer stands 10 inches tall, has a 2 1/2 inch diameter base and is about 4 inches at its widest point. It does not have any chips, cracks, crazing or scratches and is a beautiful piece of French art pottery.
