MONTPELLIER Chevrette with ribbed body out... - Lot 52 - Pescheteau-Badin
MONTPELLIER
Chevrette with ribbed body out of earthenware with polychrome decoration of a portrait of a young king of France, perhaps François II, in a medallion under the spout and under the handle the inscription S. d Stechade in a band encircled with foliage in compartments with blue, green and yellow bottom alternated, the collar decorated with a garland of foliage, the spout with blue bottom decorated with a foliage branch and the monogram PD in a shield.
Late 16th century, circa 1595.
H. 26 cm.
Small chips and a hair on the neck.

Two chevrettes of the same set are preserved in the national museum of ceramics, one decorated with a portrait of King Henry III and the other of King Henry IV. They are studied and reproduced by Lucy Vallauri and Jean-Louis Vayssettes in the catalog of the exhibition Montpellier, terre de faiences, 2012, p. 136, fig. 1 and 2. The authors suggest that the monogram PD could refer to the apothecary of Pierre Durranc, active from 1600 to 1640.
