This very wonderful and nicely done piece of faience was hand painted with colors of cobalt blue, red, green and yellow on a white background. There are flowers, insects, as well as flower filled horns or cornucopia decorating this piece. This truly a fine antique piece of art pottery that is of France origin. The Gien patterns and styles are a true reflection of French and European earthenware styles from the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries, and also of pottery styles from the Far East. Gien Faience interpretations of Rouen styles, Dutch blue patterns from Delft, Italian majolica, Marseille rosebuds and others are the pride and honor of Gien. A few areas on the base underneath rim have slight flaking but it is still in remarkable shape!. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE faience / majolica IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
Backstamp: Castle, with Gien in banner impressed K
Measures: 5 ¾" H
