Two large swimming fish float amongst the flowers in the central design of this very beautiful cache pot. This example has provenance from a fine, lifetime Parisian collection. It dates from 1890-1900.

Every inch of this cache pot is charged with enthusiastic design. The brown glazed base has four "feet" spanning out in a large basket weave pattern. The central bowl is glazed in a pale turquoise which has been accented with deep emerald and jade greens. Flowers and ferns cover the entire bowl. The flowers are accented with pale pink and brown glaze. The two fish are very pronounced and stand out 1/4"- 1/2" from the pot. You can distinguish their scales, gills, fins and eyes. They are very well executed.

There are two handles which continue the brown glazed design of the base. The rim has four wide medallions with pink shell shapes at the center. Smaller medallions in pink alternate with the larger ones giving the rim a deep scalloped edging which is most attractive.

The measurements are: 9" tall, 8 3/4" diameter at the top, 5 3/4" diameter at the base, 9" deep. It is in very good antique condition. There are very small hairline cracks to the inside glaze at the top edge (see photo) which are expected and typical with age. There is normal crackling to the glaze at the inner bottom as expected with age and use. There are no major chips or cracks to the piece, please study the photos carefully as they are part of the description.

It is a fine example with magnificent texture, design and color.
