Gorgeous Large Majolica Paté Tureen, in the shape of a country rabbit. Made for patémaker Caugant, who sold luxury delicatessen items in his shop in Bretagne from 1927 on. His son, Michel, created the figural paté forms to sell the more expensive patés in, so these are not for making paté. Highly collectible, the paté forms are so decorative, and are wonderful to display with your French Majolica collection.  

This early terrine is a two part form, hand made, hand painted and then glazed. This one has two spots where the collector had it "repaired" please see the photos. This doesn't bother me, but she is not perfect. The top lifts off to reveal a shallow bowl to fill with paté, and serve to your guests.  Signed by the artist, Michel Caugant, these terrines are very sought after by collectors. The rabbits and hares are rare, as are crawfish forms, and therefore valued highly. {In France, there is a yearly competition amongst terrine collectors to see who owns the most exquisite paté form that year!} 

  • Measures 8-1/2" X 4-1/2" X 8-3/4".
