This is a very unique piece that we believe to be an ink well. The artist has used a gray and violet luster background. He has added raised gold enamel scrolls forming a cartouche on each side. Inside of the cartouche he has hand painted pink and white flowers amongst purple and green leaves on a background of pastel blues and yellows. He has added a gold rim to the top of the piece completing it nicely. There is a chip on the base that appears to have been repaired; please see pictures. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Backstamp: Mark 1 GDA over France
Measures: 4 1/2" W, 1 7/8" at opening 2 1/5" H
