Guinea Fowl- Green Splashes Spotted White- Medium
It’s difficult not to fall under the charm of Provence handicrafts. The Guinea Fowl or Pintades as they are known in France, are undeniably part of this category. These life- sized ceramic poultry with their generous stylized lines are made of clay and hand glazed. Each features a graphic, spotted white-blue plumage that contrasts with their little faces. A family tradition initiated by Heidi Caillard 40 years ago has endured and has made the adorable guinea fowl a classic of its kind.
- Made in France.
