Vintage Large French "Mushroom" Terrine - Pillivuyt


Very nice but quite large and heavy green and brown vessel and plate by Pillivuyt of France. I'm not sure of its purpose; it could be a storage jar or large terrine, although there was a smaller version made which was more suitable for that. It has a pair of mushrooms as a finial/handle on the lid and the edges are crimped diagonally. It's heavy enough to be stoneware but the clay is white and fine so probably porcelain. There is a small surface chip on the edge of the plate but otherwise it's in excellent condition.
20cm x 16cm(h)

Jar diameter: 12cm
