Céramiques aux îles d’Amérique : la part de la Méditerranée (XVIIe-XIXe s.)

Abstract : Our article summarizes the results of the interdisciplinary research project “Potteries on the Islands of the French West Indies. Local Production and Import from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century”, conducted since 2007 in the French Antilles. Our approach is focused on archives, archaeology, heritage and iconography. The earliest archaeological material, from underwater sites, was imported in the seventeenth century from Spain, Italy and the Languedoc. In the eighteenth century Marseille and Provence provided a vast majority of glazed ceramics produced in the Huveaune valley, jars, faïence from Moustiers, tiles, bricks, and re-exported potteries from Liguria. In the nineteenth century the material from archaeological sites, Saint-Pierre in particular prior to its complete destruction by the eruption of 1902, and similar material studied in Guadeloupe, confirm the predominance of products from the Huveaune valley, kitchenware from Vallauris, jars from Biot and architectural ceramics from Marseille, and a large range of imports from various production centers of the Rhone valley.
