Louis XV Moustiers Faience Vase

This sort of bouquetiere or pique-fleurs mural (cut-flower vase) was designed to stand close to the wall, or close to a mirror, in which its flowers would appear doubled. It was made in Moustiers, France, probably at Fouque factory (cf: Nouveau Tardy, Faiences de Moustier, page 98, fig. 185) in the third quarter of the Eighteenth Century. It displays the popular Louis XV motif of a central rococo cartouche with flags and arrows and a quiver. Only normal wear and a couple of minor hairline cracks, with what seems to be a chip on the rear bottom actually only a holiday in the glaze. Approximately five inches tall by six inches wide, depth 3-1/4 inches.
