Antique 19th Century Pair Francois Maurice Signed French Contnental Victorian Aesthetic Period Tree Stump Palissy Ware Majolica Figural Animalier Faience Pottery Relief Applique Bud Vases. These are a must have if you collect Majolica or art pottery. Maurice in the artist’s distinctive script. Both modeled in the animal plant rustic garden tradition featuring reptile, insect, mushroom, vegetation motifs of lizard, snake, dragonfly and frog! We found a double stump vase in our online research, but no matching pair(s) – perhaps the only triple stump pair available. One measures 9 inches high x 8 1/4 inches wide with a 6 inch diameter base. The second measures 7 3/4 inches high x 7 3/4 inches wide with a 6 1/8 inch diameter base. From a local sale of a seniors Florida estate after retiring here from New York City. As discovered locally with estate dust still in crevices. One quite good, the other with some issues: First vase very intact with some foliage chips and flakes plus a few small lip flakes. Second vase with a few issues including large foliage clump loss, small to moderate size reglued lip section with adjacent dragonfly wing tip loss, center section rear lip chip and front lip hairline, underside hairline under signature. Typical fine crazing and firing imperfections. All items insured by our choice of either the carrier or by our own policy.
