French Majolica Melon Pitcher

French Majolica Melon Pitcher

$150.00

First appearing in 1851 at the Great Exhibition in London, Majolica is richly colored pottery with designs based on plant and animal motifs. By the time it was exhibited at the 1855 Paris World's Fair, it had taken the bourgeoisie of Europe and the Americas by storm. Many late 19th-century majolica designs had rustic motifs with backgrounds of basketry and were decorated with molded flowers, birds, fish and animals - nature inspired for sure. Even today, these designs continue to inspire and captivate.

Case in point, this handsome French Majolica Melon Pitcher. Exactingly produced using an original vintage mold, this gorgeous pitcher was made in the Loire Valley of France by the proud potters at Manufacture de Digion. With its rich, verdigris glaze, the pitcher captures the shapely details of a melon. At once both modern and vintage, this wonderful Majolica Melon Pitcher will delight for years to come.


Strictly limited quantities (at listing, a total of 2 pitchers are available) and subject to prior sale. 7" x 7.5".

Learn More About The Manufacture de Digion

The Manufacture de Digoin was founded in 1875 along the central canal in Burgundy. Ever since, they have been making elegant, simple, and practical stoneware.

The men and women at Manufacture de Digoin share a true love for the craft. Every piece is shaped and glazed by hand, and each is unique. The clay is sourced from natural French materials, and is prepared entirely inside the manufacturer’s workshops. The pieces are fired at extremely high temperatures (2282° F), stabilizing the glaze and making them both durable and non-porous. Their impermeability means odors cannot seep in, making the pieces ideal for cooking and storing food.
