Old Paris Porcelain Darte Palais Royal No. 21 Neo Gothic Footed Bulb Pot /vase For Sale

Old Paris Porcelain Darte Palais Royal No. 21 Neo Gothic Footed Bulb Pot /vase

Found at an Atlanta area estate sale on a table filled with bric-a-brac from William Sonoma and other modern retailers was this lovely, completely out of place, outstanding antique Charles X French porcelain bulb pot from around 1810 or so created by the famed Darte Freres of Rue de la Roquette Depot 21- 22 Palais Royal, and bears his usual red stamp on the bottom.Designed in the usual manner of a lion paw footed urn on a plinth with mask handles on the sides and a slightly flaring rim, this great piece still has the locking openwork lid in place with its funnel like center hole-handle.Decorated in the Neo Gothic or Gothic Revival style, this great piece features a brilliant green background for dark stonework Gothic arches and columns to stand out against, the highlights picked out in gilding. Against a finely painted railing also banding the piece stand two figures, each executed in gilding with burnished and tone on tone details. One figure is a female with ruff colar while the other is a male in court dress. Possibly representing the Renaissance era, the completely handpainted piece is a marvel of detail and execution.Measuring about 5 and 7/8th inches in total height, this porcelain piece has a 4 and 3/8th inch top rim diameter, is 3 inches square at the base and is 5 and 1/2 inches tall to the top of the flared rim and is suprisingly heavy for its size.Worn, as you would expect on the heavily applied burnished gilding, especially on all of the protruding corners, points, and rim as photographed, there is also slight wear on the female figure as shown.The only physical damage found to this bulb pot is small chipping to the two protruding teeth that extend out on the lid, locking it into place on the rim, but aside from that there are no other chips, cracks or damage other than the piece needing a cleaning.Originally created for the forcing of bulbs such as Paperwhites or Narcissus, stones and water would have been placed inside along with bulbs, allowing them to grow up through the opening in the top creating a bouquet, the locking lid keeping them from disrupting and tilting the lid as they went upward.Perfect today for potpourri or for a small arrangement of flowers on your mantle, this is a great and outstanding Atlanta find.Although it is exciting to offer and win an item on , if you are an impatient winner, please read this and think carefully before offerding;
Every item is carefully wrapped and boxed, as you would expect, (and I would expect, I buy on too), which takes time. In addition to that I am not responsible for the delivery schedules of the U.S. Postal Service and the time it takes for them to deliver a package to you in your part of the country or world, which may take two days or fourteen days or more, at their discretion from their receipt of the package. And yes, I agree that the cost of shipping an item is too high, but that is the cost as quoted by the U.S. Postal Service; the days of inexpensive shipping are behind us and I doubt will ever be seen again.

*Generally almost all items are shipped within three or four days of receipt of payment; however, life does happen, so that shipping time frame cannot be guaranteed continually which is why this listing indicates a 10 business day handling time, though that rarely happens.* By offerding you show that you accept and understand this.

Without the shipping box and packing, this antique porcelain bulb pot weighs 1 pound 7 ounces.
