This Michel Caugant paté terrine was made in Portugal. It is faience and made entirely by hand. It was hand-painted with undercoat to emphasize the details and then glazed before the second firing.
Michel Caugant was the son of a French paté maker from Brittany, and this terrine is to display patés or terrines. This is an earlier Caugant based on the sticker and not the text that appears on the bottom of the terrines in later years.
****CAUTION: This is not for baking a paté or terrine. This is only to display the finished paté or terrine.
***Please note the imperfections in photos nine and ten. The ninth photo shows an area that occurred prior to the bisque firing. It was then glazed over. The tenth photo shows an area on the left on the antler that is a result of a glaze issue. The other areas to the right of this show two marks that occurred prior to the bisque firing and that were then glazed over. One of the marks has a rougher texture as the glaze did not take or was accidentally wiped away. Because this piece was handmade and hand-glazed, there are imperfections that are less likely to occur in mass-produced ceramic lots.
Opening is 8" x 4.5" at widest.
Depth is approximately 3".
Base is 10" x 5".
Height is 9".
Thank you for looking.
