About the work

Masséot Abaquesne was a manufacturer of medicinal vessels in Rouen, France. They produced vessels in the fashion of other faience pottery making use of its brilliantly-colored glazes "Rouen faience." Wikipedia, 23 May 2022, 23 May 2022.. Yet, the wares took on a rather French appearance in the application of line and the imagery used. The illustraton on this albarello recalls the look of a classical woman wearing a wreath, suggesting the class of its intended consumer.
