A reminder: The ceramic is frost resistant, but if the surface becomes moist, the glaze could crack at temperatures below freezing. It is better to bring the ceramics inside in the winter or to some other dry location. They can spend the winter as decorations on house walls protected from the rain without danger to the glaze.
A Rival Of the Frog King.
We cannot recommend throwing this frog against the wall. The chance that a beautiful prince will emerge from the shards is almost zero. You'll anyway notice by the missing crown that this is not one of the locally known reigning Frog Kings. This is a simple down-to-earth (or pond) frog with a no-nonesense attitude.
Craftsmanship and art drawn from nature, from the South of France.
Pottery has been manufactured in the south of France in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie since the Middle Ages. Originally intended solely for domestic use, in addition to the production of decorative pottery vessels a new speciality emerged: sculptures drawn from nature of local animals, like cicadas, salamanders and lizards. They are most often found as objects decorating the houses. The traditional provençal ridge turrets with a lizard on the frontmost ridge tile is part of this tradition. The Figuière family, which has been producing pottery for three generations, and which has become the last firm producing such ceramics, supplies us with ceramic animals. They are glazed by hand, so that each one is unique, distinguishing it slightly in color and pattern from the others.
