Superb 18 inch antique Art Nouveau majolica vase, c1890
Superb long-necked Art Nouveau majolica vase, c1890
This is a magnificent long-necked antique majolica vase measuring 18 inches high.
We think this vase was made by Orchies, one of the great majolica factories which existed in northern France, It has no backstamp, though, no doubt because of a small fabrication flaw on the belly of the vase (see picture).
Glazed in oxblood red with flashes of ‘Aesthetic’ turquoise and brown running the length of the vase and continuing inside.
Marked on the base with its model number, 2180
Height 46cm / 18 inches
Width at base 23cm/ 9 inches
