“Boy” Blue and White Antique Bottle


An antique French faience bottle painted in underglaze blue with the word “Boy.”

For many years this type of bottle with the word “Boy” was thought to be English Delft. But recent research has determined that bottles of this kind are mid-18th century French faience, from Nevers in the Loire valley. The lugged shape is found in both French and Italian pottery. This fine example has two small loop handles on each side.

Dimensions: H 8 in. x Dm 5 in.

Condition: Excellent. Small expected edge frits.
