Antique French Majolica Rooster Absinthe Pitcher
Sold, Thank you!

After recent study of this piece, I've revised the description and price from my earlier research many years ago!. I believe it must be pre 1921, as it is marked France, with the impressed mark St Clement France and their number 7516. The 19th century pieces, had a 3 digit impressed mark. It has beautiful colorations and detailed molding. I love the way the tail feathers turn up to create the handle and the beak forms the pouring spout! A most desirable and collectible piece for display as well as use...especially for the rooster collector and Oh! so French! In excellent condition, but for a slight abrasion or sliver of a chip on the top beak left side, which is shown in 4th photo and is not even noticed to the naked eye without thorough inspection. The white sparkles in the photos are from reflection. It measures 13 1/2" tall X approx 8" wide. I'm always studying and researching my items as I want to always give the most accurate info possible, hence this revision.
