This an amazing and very large pair of French Faience/Majolica handled urns by the famous French potter Jerome Massier Fils, Vallauris. The urns were created in the  Renaissance Revival Style and date to c. 1870-1880. The Messiers family was active as potters dating from the mid-18th century and is credited with the establishment of Vallauris as a center for artistic pottery in the 19th century. The brothers Delpin and Clement Massier and their cousin Jean-Baptiste (pottery known as Jerome Massier Fils) established their own individual artistic faience factories, creating the famous Vallauris pottery center. The quality of all the Massier work was exceptional with the creative and innovative examples being the most highly valued. Clement developed a luster glaze for which his work is famous. This pair of urns by Jerome Massier Fils is in exceptional condition with no detectable flaws or restorations. The urns have been fitted with custom gilt bronze gas fittings (now adapted to electrical sockets) which I have removed and reserved for buyer. The detailed modeling of the urns, the varigated green and mustard glaze are all indications of exceptional quality. It is extremely difficult to fire such large pieces of pottery without some damage showing up upon removal from the kiln. The photos speak for themselves. The last photo shows the urns prior to removal of the bronze electrical fittings. Please contact me for retail and trade pricing or for additional information regarding the urns using the contact link at lower left. Thanks for visiting.
