A Woven Faience Basket
Reference No: 473
A finely made French white faience ceramic fruit platter in the shape of a woven basket. These woven majolica items were ‘virtuoso’ works, fired twice in the kiln, and being of complex shapes were very hard to make: Any fault by the artisan in the modelling of the clay would have resulted in a breakage in the kiln. France, mid 20th century.
