Delightful & rare French faience cache or jardinière signed by Paul Hannong.. The Hannong factory was begun by Charles Francois Hannong in 1709 and then to his sons, Paul & Balthasar . In 1744 Paul discovered the art of applying gold to his white enamel and profited by the visit to his factory by King Louis XV where the King received the first objects of his new discovery.. This cache/jardinière dates to that period when gold was first applied; circa 1740..Paul Hannong died 1760. In the armorial there is a head of a Knight with armor on top in gold. Lovely well-drawn flowers in bright enamels with delicate outlines in black rest on a very white thick creamy tin-glaze that covers a pinkish, dense ceramic.. This surface shimmers/sparkles with light.. A few hairlines restored.. rest on 4 little French feet.. Measures 5 1/2" square x 5 1/2" high.. Quite substantial weight.
