Pappilon is a mother, daughter collaboration of ideas spanning 'some' decades of new and old. Both having a fascination with interiors and art we like to think we have a unique style and taste where we select individual pieces for their own stand-alone worth and value and like family, it is a growing family of unique antique pieces that makes us love what we do. The philosophy we both share is 'Things of quality have no fear of time'. Antiques which have withstood the test of time relate to a quality found in craftsmanship most often lost in today's modern age. This doesn't simply mean we stick with the old but the ethos of what we stand for is that even antiques for the future should have a consideration to its longevity and quality as well as its style. At Pappilon we pride ourselves on seeking out items for the home by selecting unique pieces of furniture and furnishings not simply as a ready-made style but where each individual item has something to say for itself, much like the individuals who buy from us.

Extremely large early 19th century French glazed terracotta Vase d'Anduze from the Boisset family - formally the Gautier workshop, of campagna form Featuring cabochons and swags. Inscribed 'fait par Boisset, Anduze 1814'. Displaying a beautifully worn patina - Originally the glaze would have been applied in green, brown and yellow streaks. The Anduze range of pots originated from the Cévennes mountain ranges of Southern France. Most specifically in Anduze which is located at the foot of the Cevennes range. These handmade terracotta glazed pots were handcrafted, initially to house orange and lemon trees in many of the Manor houses, large parks, and historical sites throughout Provence. Today, they can often be found on their own or as part of a pair as highly decorative pieces of pottery. The first of these vases originate from the Anduze region and date from the early 16th century part of the Gautier workshop. A family of potters established in the region. During the last quarter of the 18th century, Louis Etienne Boisset took over the workshop. Learning his craft from his Uncle Gautier of the famed Gautier workshop. This pot dates from the early 19th century - circa 1814. Those Anduze pots that have stood the test of time have travelled across the world and sit proudly in many gardens and interiors. The craftsmanship of these fabulous antique pots presents a beautiful patina that can only be achieved from hundreds of years of wear and use. To this date, many gardens and parks are decorated with these masterpieces giving them a royal, and grand allure. Many designers will often include these antique urns or large planters in their garden designs or interiors. We would recommend that this pot is used inside - or very well protected from the frost and elements if placed outdoors.
