Pair of Pitchers shaped as hounds
When we have first seen these pitchers, we knew we have to have them!

Their unusual shape – as a greyhound, the refreshing decor – blue camayeux, we wouldn’t think ever of this combination! with colored floral accents – and their mint condition made us to acquire them instantly.
After they arrived in our gallery we start to do some research – we found some interesting details about them.

Part of the GYPP dogs family, barbotine of Saint-Clément, each pitcher is signed and numbered 507/1 en creux, on the bottom, CK and the St.Clement marks covered with glaze.
