Faience Porcelain Bacchus (God of wine) antique print c1870

by Delaroque/Ris-Paquot

Antique Print of Bacchus, the God of Wine, Faience Porcelain.

Faience porcelain was the first "soft" porcelain, created in Europe early in the 18th century by Louis Poterat, sieur de Saint-Etienne, a potter of Rouen in France. This beautiful soft coloured, warm milky white translucent earthenware, is traditionally decorated by foliated patterns and floral designs of typical French style, or ornamented by coloured designs in imitation of the old Chinese and Japanese porcelain.

This original lithograph of Faience porcelain in the form of Bacchus, God of Wine, is from a series illustrating the finest of Faience porcelain. The lithograph was printed in colour by Ris-Paquot in Amiens, for "Histoire des Faiences de Rouen", published in Paris circa 1870 by Eugene Delaroque.
