A very pretty antique Majolica or Faience Jardiniere or Planter. The Jardiniere is not signed but is most likely Barbotine. It is decorated with a Bird and has hand painted details and rich coloration. Overall dimensions are 8" x 6 3/4" x 6" high. The Jardiniere is in good condition for it's age and fragile nature, this type of pottery is easily prone to damage. There are losses to the bird's beak and feet and scattered losses to the glaze on the back of one of the bird's wings and above his eye, see photos. The interior has dark spots. The Jardiniere has a wonderful decorative quality. It would make a fine addition to an antique Faience or Majolica collection.
