Édouard Colonna (1862–1948) (silver mounts only); Potter: Alexandre Bigot (French, 1862–1927)
Stoneware, grès flammé, with silver mounts
H. 3 1/8 in. (7.9 cm)
Purchase, Edward C. Moore Jr. Gift, 1926 (26.228.7)
The silver mounts are typical of Colonna's sinuous style of metalwork, which has the delicacy of jewelry even when used for furniture or, as here, to provide the handle for this subtly glazed stoneware jug. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris has an example of this design purchased from Siegfried Bing in 1900.
