Brian Haughton Gallery - A very rare German Schrezheim faience box and cover in the form of a tortoise, c 1750.

Christophe Pèrles is bringing a selection of European ceramics covering France, Italy, Germany and Belgium along with many notable pieces of Japanese porcelain including Kakiemon, blue Arita and Imari decoration. An exceptional example is a rare Nevers faience gourd made around 1670. A similar pair is in the Louvre, Paris. Nevers, a city located in the central region of France, became a significant site of faience production in the early 17th century. The 1565 marriage between Louis Gonzaga of Mantua and Henriette of Cleves, heiress of Nevers, encouraged the production of Italian artisans who had moved to the city and helped establish factories there.
