Here is a never seen pair of marked 18th Century Marseilles France Veuve Perrin hand painted Faience square covered bottles/jars with scenes of sailing ships and floral bouquets. Each bottle has two different ship scenes and two different floral bouquets. Each bottle has a pottery lid attached to a cork stopper. If you look closely, one of the designs on the base of the stopper is different than the top part of the jar, and I believe this to be intentional and that the jars are perfectly matched.. The jars measure approx. 5" tall to top of stopper, by 2 3/4" wide and 2 3/4" deep. These magnificent jars date from 1748-1803 but I have reason to believe the actual date is closer to 1760. Considering their age both pieces are in fabulous condition with the exceptions of: the jar with the pink daisies has a shallow chip to the rim opening and a possible chip repair approx. 1/4" away (both really insignificant), some fritting to the glaze, light surface wear and light paint fade, the cork stoppers do not fit tightly into the jar because of shrinkage of the cork.
