This is a delightful old French pitcher in the shape of a 'coq' which is the symbol bird of France as the eagle is the American symbol. It is made of high quality faience and is glazed in soft cream, blue, yellow and red with lots of black lettering. This pitcher would have been distributed to bistros and cafes as a publicity piece in the early to mid-1900s. It advertises a sort of quinine 'kola' made at one time in Alsace by the company of Rene Hanhart of Belfort. It is marked on the bottom with a number 'no 4190'.

I have seen these pitchers from time to time in French antique shops and at the many brocantes we visit, but the price has always been out of my reach or the pitcher was damaged in some way but this one has survived beautifully with no imperfection that I can find...and the price was reasonable.

This is a charming collectors item for display in an authentic French decor...

This pitcher is heavy, weighing just over a kilo or about 2.3 lbs...another indication of its excellent quality.

It stands 8 3/4 inches high and measures 8 1/2 inches across. I think it likely would hold about a litre or so of water.

A truly charming and elegant 'old-fashioned piece of French history ....

Price: $125.00 ++RESERVED++
