19th Century French Egouttoir made of faience with a grey white glaze, this humble piece of country pottery is one of my favorite finds from a latest trouvaille hunt!  Used in kitchens around France over 100 years ago as a drainer when rinsing vegetables straight from the potager, or fruits picked perhaps down the lane, this is an exceptional and very decorative piece. 

This footed charmer has plenty of personality, patina, craquelure, and hairlines....at one time it was deemed worthy enough to take it to be professionally "fixed" with a metal staple {actually what I adore MOST about this piece!} An exquisite addition to your collection of faience from the 1800's, to display with joy. Measures 8" x 1-3/4"h.
