Description

John Edwards' stylish Camille is indentified by the distinctive "Porcelaine de Terre" mark.  Every 4 inches along the base of an ewer there are two pairs of soft fluting that rise four inches.  The soft fluting is repeated at the top extending down 1.5 inches.  A scrolled 'c' design decorates the handle with a leaf impression at the top handle terminal.  There is scalloped embossing almost like lace edging at the throat.  

Truly a lovely example of the potter's art.
