Charolles France - Art deco cat in cracked earthenware

Charolles France - Art deco cat in cracked earthenware
France - 1920-1949 - Cracked earthenware

The history of the Charolles Faïencerie dates back to 1844, when Hippolyte Prost, a local child, took over his father's pottery studio. He first produced rustic and utilitarian earthenware.

Then, the production became more delicate under the influence of Elisabeth Parmentier, who, in 1879, created the "Artistic Decor." This central roses or tulips bunch, surrounded by a fine "combed" blue, becomes the emblem of the house. "LE Charolles," as we would now call this unique style, was born. And he became famous all over the world!

Adorable cat that will adopt you with its look and its very relaxing posture, authentic Art Deco period cat made of sublime cracked, authentic "Charolles"

A slight enamel chip on the nose and one ear, easily fixable with varnish paint

Carefully packed, worldwide delivery with tracking number.
