FAIENCE CILINDRICAL PHARMACYPOT, WITH BLEU INSCRIPTION “AUREUM”. THE POT WITH BLUE GUIRLANDE AND BIRDS AT THE TOP AND AN ANGELHEAD WITH ONE ROPES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CARTOUCHE. THE ROUGH BOTTOM OF THE POT HAS, SADLY ENOUGH, NO MARKING OF THE FAIENCEPOTTERY SO WE CAN NOT BE CERTAIN OF THE PROVENANCE.
