Huge Antique French Barbotine Pottery Delphin Massier Vallauris Aesthetic Vase :
This saleis for a huge antique Vallauris vase.
A barbotine masterpiece by Delphin Massier.
Modelled in the Aesthetic taste with many birds perched on bamboo stalks which is supporting a large egg.
Signed to the underside.
Measures 18.5 inches/47cm tall.
It inevitably needs some work - there is an old clean break to the side of the egg and a fine short stress line next to that. Three of the birds have losses to the tiny beaks and two are missing a wing - there is a the odd tiny frit here and there, small section of bamboo missing to one of the rims.
Given the size and complexity of the this piece that is not bad at all.
I have done the postage as cheaply as possible but as you can image its a huge piece and will need to go in a massive box - if the postage comes in any cheaper once its packed I will refund the difference.
Please see my other antiques.
USA and European buyers only please!
