A very decorative antique art nouveau french
barbotine majolica planter or jardiniere by a renowned maker, Jean-Marie
The 7 inch high planter has the impressed "P" mark
of Pointu on the base and dates from around 1880.
The planter has high or gros relief applied pink and red
poppies and leaves on a mottled and graduated black/grey background. Pointu is
a highly collected maker of this type of ware, and although there is some
damage to the edges of the petals and leaves etc this is still a very
decorative and sought after item for any collector.
It has a base diameter of 5 3/4 inches is 7 inches at the
rim. It weighs 2214g unpacked.
Please take a look at my Pointu barbotine vase also listed
for sale, from the same collection.
