This open salt is shaped like a clown with two faces. Each side has a different facial expression. Whimsical in design, it brings out the rustic peasant atmosphere of the French countryside. The folk style can be seen in the unrefined shape, painting, and floral motif. Blues, whites, reds, and yellows – the standard colors for French faience – are once more put to good use. The piece was made by Desvres and is signed by George Martel. During the 19th century, the Fourmaintraux dynasty made Desvres the most important earthenware centre in northern France. It continues to be known as one of the premier French faience pottery makers.
