Form and functionality, color and condition. This little piggy has got it all.
This jewelers enameling kiln, with its riveted strap work iron chassis ,probably dates to the early part of the 20th century and was found in rural France. The strap work chassis is pitted with age. From its gently splayed feet and arching under carriage to its braced circular outer frame, the formation of the whole is grace and beauty. The body of the kiln is a thick cylindrical earthenware cast with a chimney and rear ledge. The kiln door has a thick fin or tail like handle which sits atop the ledge. Inside the door is a semi cylindrical terracotta inner chamber where the jewelry and ground glass are heated from underneath. There are remnants of red powder inside the chamber from previous use.
Despite this, the kiln is in excellent condition and could probably still be used. Its form and natural colors are there to be admired.
