14″ long x 6-1/2″ wide x 7 high. A stunning large antique jardiniere or planter painted by George Martel from Desvres, a town situated in the north of France that was a leading centre for porcelain design beginning in the 1760s. This piece dates to circa 1920. The central cartouche features a domestic scene of a woman spinning and two children at a hearth. The Bretagne crest with ermine tails and fleur-de-lys decorate the reverse with the Arabesque pattern in green above. During the nineteenth century, Desvres became the most important earthenware centre in northern France. George Martel, active c. 1900, set up one of the largest ceramic factories in the area.
