L'instrumentum domestique des membres de la Nation française à Larnaka (1694-1710), les mots et leur réalité matérielle

Abstract : This article deals with the material culture of the members of the French “nation” in Larnaca between 1694 and 1710. The analysis of the information contained in 25 inheritance inventories is coupled with a study of the crockery and everyday objects excavated in Cyprus. It allows to specify the function and the use of “pots and pans” for food preparation, of tableware, of large containers for food preservation and transportation, of toiletries and comfort, of containers for the maintenance of linen and the house. It concerns to determine the part of the pottery in the domestic instrumentum. Here are presented the objects they use, the descriptive vocabulary and the practices of everyday life that we can guess, and which come from two distinct geographical and cultural worlds: Provence and Marseille from which the merchants originate and Ottoman Cyprus, more largely the Near East, where they live, work, travel and die. This study reveals the part of exoticism and the part of pragmatism as well as the necessary and relative “orientalisation” of the interiors of the French merchants in Larnaca.
