キュノワールの小さなカップ。“cul”はフランス語で「お尻」の意、“noir”は「黒」を表すとおり、背面が黒い(厳密には茶褐色)、ノルマンディ地方のルーアンを起源とする古民芸品です。赤茶褐色、もしくはビスケット色の陶土を素地に、おもて面は白く、背面は黒に近い深飴色をしているのが特徴です。カップのような形をしていますが、用途は喫茶以外にも様々で、シードルやワインなどの酒類など、幅広い用途で嗜まれていたようです。本品は口周り、底面にぽつぽつと小さな釉薬の欠けがありますので、水ものに長時間浸すようなご使用はお避け頂ければと存じます。お好きな方は是非。

Cul-noir cup. As "cul" means "buttocks" in French and "noir" means "black," this is an old folk art item with a black (strictly speaking, brownish-brown) back, originating from Rouen in Normandy. It is made of reddish-brown or biscuit-colored clay, with a white surface and a deep candy-colored, almost black, back. Although it is shaped like a cup, it was used for various purposes other than coffee, such as cider, wine, and other alcoholic beverages. There are some small glaze chips around the mouth and on the bottom of the cup, so please avoid using the cup for long periods immersed in water. If you like it, you may enjoy it.
