This is one of just a few examples that I have seen during my entire career outside of the Musee des beax arts in Nancy. I have been involved in the antiques business since 1971.
My career took a leap forward when I joined Bonhams in 1976. Some five years later I became head of the Decorative Arts department. This item is in the category "Pottery, Ceramics & Glass\Decorative Pottery, Ceramics & Glass\Vases".
