A very decorative antique art nouveau French barbotine majolica vase by a renowned maker, Jean-Marie Pointu.
The 6 5/8 inches high vase has the impressed "P" mark of Pointu on the base and dates from around 1880.
The vase has high or gros relief applied pink and orange 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.
The vase weighs 992grammes and has a base diameter of 2 1/2 inches.
