THREE Earthenware Pitchers. "P. Bardinet 100/75cl Distillateur Bordeaux Déposé".
A set of THREE rustic, earthenware pitchers. One holds 100 centilitres (approx. 2 US Pints), the other two hold 75cls (approx. 1½ US Pints). You can see these capacities marked clearly in a vintage typeface on the undersides.
Glazed in a gorgeous two tone terracotta and oatmeal colour, they would look fabulous displayed hanging from farmhouse kitchen oak beams or on a country cottage dresser. The terracotta glaze is glossy and smooth, the oatmeal below has a slightly rough texture, making it very tactile.
If hung from beams the bottoms can be seen clearly and, as the markings on the base are so wonderfully rustic, it really adds to their charm and authenticity.
In excellent condition with no chips, cracks or visible flaws, each jug has the famous "P Bardinet" signature, "distillateur Bordeaux, Déposé" (trademark) on the base, from the P. Bardinet Company in the Bordeaux region of France. Started in 1857, it is famous for its distillation of rum and brandy.
The largest 100 cl pitcher measures 45cms (17¾") circumference (at its widest) and stands 25cms (9¾") tall.
The two 75cl pitchers measure 38cms (15") circumference (at their widest) and stand 23cms (9") tall.
Altogether they weigh 2.3kgs/ 5 lbs.
