The history of St. Clément Pottery is a long one, dating back to the mid 1700s when it was established by Jacques Chambrette, producing traditional French faience. St. Clément became a favoured supplier for Marie Antoinette.
St. Clément majolica is characterized by the subtle shadings of colours. The majolica pieces include a series of figural jugs or absinthe pitchers in the form of a duck with folded wings, a rooster, or a parrot. Also other animals can be found, like a pig, rabbit, cat, monkey or poodle, but are more rare. Old pitchers mostly have 3-digit numbers while newer productions carry 4-digit numbers. They were mostly produced in the 1920s and 1930s. They are all truly lovely historic pieces of fabulous St. Clément pottery.

All of our vintage products show the rich beauty and history of their life with the knocks and bumps of many years of use. We restore our pieces so they will be clean and in a good working condition. However we try to minimise restoration to keep every piece as original as possible.
The physical object can differ slightly in colour from the object as presented online. We have made every effort to display colours accurately, but cannot guarantee that the pictures accurately reflect the colour of those goods in real life.
