Rare French 18th Century Faience Wine Cask and Basin

This 18th century hand-painted faience set is in fantastic condition given its age. The Country style French antique piece features a wine cask & basin with a top painted with stripes. The cask is adorned with an image of an allegorical figure holding a banner next to a basket of fruit. Both pieces are decorated with garlands of stars and ribbons, and a floriate decoration is seen at the bottom rim of the basin. Finally a twisted yellow faience ring is attached to each side of the basin.
Basin 16″ wide x 11″ deep x 4 1/2″ tall; Cask 10″ diameter x 24″ tall
