19th Century French Napoleon III Painted Porcelain Vase with Bird and Butterfly
This elegant antique vase was created in France circa 1880 by “Porcelaine de Paris”. Made of porcelain and round in shape with a thick and wide neck, the colorful vessel is decorated with hand painted bird, butterfly and floral motifs. The decor is further embellished with gilt accents throughout, including around the base. This large fluted vase is in excellent condition commensurate with age and use, and adorns soft and pastel colors in the green, blue, and cream palette, with gilt accents. The flower pot would make a nice addition on a table, mantle, or a console. Porcelaine de Paris is a French porcelain manufacturing company, founded by Jean-Marx Clauss theApril 11, 1822.

Initially specializing in the creation of porcelain pieces (decorative objects, crockery and tableware, watches, jewellery), it is now a company that sells ceramic sanitary ware for export. The pieces are made with respect for ancestral traditions and the raw material, kaolin, by the master craftsmen of Porcelaine de Paris. Measures: 9″ diameter x 13.5″ height.
