The Merchant of Prato presents beautiful, rustic Provencal Pottery invoking the glorious colors found in The South of France with imported collections from Souleo Provence Pottery and Barbotine Provencal Pottery.
Souleo Provence Pottery, formerly known as Terre E Provence Pottery is the quintessential handmade artisan ceramic tableware evoking Provence. Made by the same family since the 19th century, Souleo Provence Pottery is now being produced in Aledo, Spain. Continuing the Provencal tradition, each piece of Souleo Provence Pottery is glazed then hand-painted with the vibrant colors found in The South of France.
Barbotine Pottery – Made in France. Crafted in the heart of Provence, Barbotine Pottery presents a collection of rustic pottery in glazed earth based on the culinary heritage and decorative forms of Provence and the Mediterranean. Featuring the vibrant colors of the Provencal landscape, Barbotine’s rustic plates and kitchenware will bring a burst of color to your table. Not only are they practical but also beautiful on your table!
Our Provence pottery is rustic, handmade, hand-painted pottery, therefore imperfections and color variations will occur. These beauty marks are part of the charm of these products. In addition, crackling may be found in the glaze of some pieces. This is due to the firing process and is part of the attractiveness of the pottery.
