Antique French Washing Pot - small Bugadier 15¾"

SKU: 16183

Glazed on the inside, this pot would have been used for washing laundry in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century. It is known as a bugadier and is a rare find. Note the pretty pattern under the lip - a technique known as 'doigtier' whereby the potter simply presses into the clay to make a chain-like pattern. A long-handled rod was used for stirring the washing. A lovely addition to any garden or interior alongside a collection of pottery or on its own. 

Condition and patina consistent with age.
Approx. overall 15¾" high x 15¼" external diameter x 11¾" clearance internally
Approx. overall 40cm high x 39cm external diameter x 30cm clearance internally
