Description

These Four Unusual 'Calvados' Pitchers are wonderful and 'Quirky' collectors' pieces. They can be used for decoration or as tableware/barware.

They are from Lisieux , a commune in the Calvados department in the Normandy region of North West France. It is the capital of the Pays d'Auge area, which is characterised by valleys and hedged farmland.

These ceramics can be found in many different shapes and sizes. Each one is individually hand thrown and decorated with handmade 'Apple' and 'Leaves' clay details and are used for ageing Calvados Liqueur, which is an Apple Brandy.

The 'Jug' Shaped Pitcher has a pouring lip, as does the 'Bottle' Shaped Pitcher - Both have sturdy handles.

They are all in excellent, near perfect condition and the bottle is complete with the 'Norman Head' Stopper over the cork. It is in the shape of a Man in his Nightcap!
There are no visible cracks or chips.

The 'Bottle' has a 'head stopper' over the cork in the shape of a Man in his Nightcap! and is decorated with the 'Calvados' Banner. It has slightly more glaze than the rest of the set, giving it a 'shimmer' and is embossed with 'Lisieux' at the bottom. It stands 28cms tall (11 inches approx.) to the top of the head and is approx. 15cms diameter (5.9 inches) at its widest.

The Two 'Mugs' are also stamped 'Lisieux' on the front, in two different typefaces. They have been uniquely hand thrown and so vary in size and are not perfectly symmetrical. They carry the same appliquéd detailing of apples and leaves. They are 9cms/ 10cms tall (3.5-3.9 inches approx.) and 6cms/7cms diameter (2.3-2.7 inches approx.) The mugs have more of a matt feel than the jug and bottle.

The Jug stands 22cms tall (8.6 inches approx.) and 15cms diameter (5.9 inches approx. at its widest) It has a tiny leaf tip missing from the top leaf, but this does not in any way detract from the beauty of the piece and it almost impossible to spot at normal viewing distance.

They are all fabulously characterful and will be a real 'talking point' at dinner parties. This set would make a great gift for any apple cider lover and a great addition to any Rustic Dresser or Country Kitchen.

Hang them from your 'Country Kitchen' Beams or use them to serve your dinner guests a 'Stylish Digestif' ...............have fun!...........
