Fives Lille French Art Nouveau jardiniere
A very unusual ceramic jardiniere by Fives Lille, from around 1900.
It’s in shades of ‘aesthetic’ green. The rim is decorated with butterflies (or are they bees?) in relief. The tiny handles are not practical, but so pretty.
It has the Fives Lille factory mark on the base, together with original shop label.
Width 7 inches
Height 6 inches
Excellent condition. Some internal crazing.
