French Faience Rouge Pot

(18th to 19th Century)

One almost complete tin-glazed ointment/rouge pot with a pale green-colored tin glaze covering third of the exterior. Much of the ointment pot is heavily burned and parts are discolored from fire damage. Parts of the body are encrusted with debris and cementitious material. The ointment pot has a thick solid base and a subtle everted rim. It is most likely French in origin. The interior depth of the vessel is rather shallow and would not have held much product.
