Antique French Faience Majolica jug fashioned as a monk. His cheerful posture is very welcoming with his hands on his chest and a smile on his face.

The bottom is stamped #706 Made in France with the hallmark of The Onnaing Faiencerie. It was founded in Onnaing, France, in 1821. It was nearly destroyed during World War I, but production of Majolica Faience pieces resumed in 1921.

I acquired this piece at the estate of two highly regarded college professors who, after retirement in the 1990s, turned their love for collecting into a prosperous antique business selling in Round Top as well as across the South.
As you can imagine, their estate was unbelievable…it had the most extensive Majolica collection I’ve ever seen. They were avid book collectors, orchid enthusiasts, and custom framers who expertly framed botanicals and birds from antique books and magazines. 

It measures 8" tall x 6.5" deep x 5" wide. It's in lovely vintage condition with some crazing and shallow chipping along the bottom but nothing that detracts from its displability or is inconsistent with age.

I’ve been told by a Majolica collector that a chip is a sign of a Majolica piece's age and in no way deters its collectibility.
