Beautiful Antique French Faience Clock by Veuve Perrin with sailboats, Chateau, birds, flowers, a farmhouse cottage and a Girl catching butterflies in excellent condition with the clock added at a later date. Fine one stroke painting technique and raised 2 dimensional motifs Lovely deep tin-glazed surface with one tiny glaze flake in back restored.. The Rococo shape looks like the shape of a woman! Very similar to one French Faience Music stand I sold a few weeks ago # PJ 871 ( can be seen on one of the last pages of " sold" on my shop ) that has a different mark on base but has the same colors, painting technique . Research had shown that the Music Stand is 17th century.. This clock case is 18th century as " Dictionary of Marks- Pottery and Porcelain " by Kovel has defined and as other sources have defined. can also be used as a vase by putting at base a small container. marked in back with VP in black which makes it the earliest VP. measures 12" high x 4" wide x 2 1/2" ..deep
