This asparagus cradle is a beautiful example of French majolica, or barbotine. It is decorated with asparagus and cabbage leaf foliage, and dates from the early twentieth century. It was sourced from a private collection that was held for over fifty years.

Extract from The Majolica International Society.

The earthenware producer Salins was established in 1857 in Salins-les-Bains in Lorraine, near the border with Switzerland. The site of an old Capuchin convent with its surrounding premises was converted to a faience pottery. Salins was awarded a silver medal at the Paris Universal Expositon in 1889 and a gold medal at the Paris International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in 1912. The bulk of Salins majolica production consisted of artichoke and asparagus plates, platters and cradles. Pieces were generally well modeled and glazed. When marked, the name “SALINS” is impressed on a white background.
