Dish: 'Temperance'

Georges Pull was one of the many French potters influenced by the work of the extrodianary 16th-century French ceramicist Bernard Palissy. From 1856 Pull worked with his sculptor son at perfecting copies of Palissy's work. This dish is based on an original that Palissy moulded from a pewter dish made around 1590 by Fran├žois Briot.

1080-1871

Georges Pull was one of many French potters influenced by the works of Bernard Palissy (1510-1590), who achieved the status of national hero by about 1850. From 1856 Pull worked with his sculptor son at perfecting copies such as this, modelling, glazing and supervising the firing personally. The Palissy original was itself moulded directly from Francois Briot's pewter "Temperance" dish about 1590: examples of both are in this museum. The pattern shows Temperance surrounded by the four elements, and the seven liberal arts with Minerva around the rim. []
