Teapot from Belvy

The entire village turned out for a vide grenier (empty attic) in the village of Belvy in the Ile de France.  There were families with kids and dogs, food vendors selling homemade black sausage and crepes and dozens of tables where people were selling everything from stuffed boars' heads to furniture to pieces of the family's heirloom silver.  I bought this teapot for 1 euro with the express intent of painting it when I got back to the States - which is what I have done.  6" x 8" on linen covered panel.
