You don't often see large sand majolica pieces especially ones that are actually marked with the maker, so we feel this quite a fine. This vase has a soft off white sand majolica finish on the outside and a glossy pinkish burgundy inside. A beautiful barbotine burgundy rose decorates the front and is accented with multicolored leaves. The inside of the vase has that wonderful pink color associated with older majolica and the bottom of the vase is yellow. There are repairs to the petals and some of the leaves are chipped so please see pictures for condition. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE 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. This would make a wonderful addition to any majolica collection.
A similar vase is pictured in the book titled "Majolica" by Mark F. Moran
