This beautiful old 8 sided compote is decorated with deep blue acanthus leaves. They are intermingled with stems and other stylized leaves which swirl around a central impressive stylized display of blue flowers and contrasting light colored central. Surrounding this central display of botanical and floral elements are floral and geometric designs. The rim border is again a combination of somewhat realistic and stylized botanical and floral motifs. Under the rim where each side connects is a similar design that the rim has. The 8 sided base also has blue flowers and acanthus leaves decoration. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
