The French sense of humor is apparent in this double face majolica pitcher by Sarreguimes. The top smiling face has a hat, and we see curls of hair over the ears. On the bottom is a frowning face, and below the upside down face is a a motto "Tu ris quand tu es plein - quand tu es vide je te plains." The translation is "You laugh when you are full; when you are empty you complain." This pitcher is listed on page 181 of the book "Majolica" by Marilyn G. Karmason.. The pitcher has a lovely turquoise interior and is clearly marked on the bottom with the name of the maker as well as the number 2313. The height is 8.5 inches and the distance across from tip of pitcher to tip of handle is 8 inches. The piece is in outstanding condition with no condition issues.
