19th Century French Saint Clément Majolica Duck Mallard Pitcher


An unusual and very quirky vintage Majolica barbotine water or wine pitcher in the shape of a mallard duck, made by Keller et Guérin’s earthenware factory at Saint Clément, near Lunéville, in north-eastern France around the turn of the 20th century. Typical of Saint Clément majolica, it is glazed with bright, jewel shades and exhibits plenty of character with its spout in the form of an open beak. A numbered piece, it is stamped with the maker’s mark on its base. Highly collectible, this is a wonderful retro decoration for the dinner table, and would be a fun way to serve wine or water.
