An outstanding and rare majolica of the florentine pottery art of the expiring 19th Century. The baluster shaped vase displays three segments of different heraldic coats of arms, each devided by a balcony or basin style holder for cut flowers.
It displays the prominent coat of arms of the Medici Family which ruled over Florence from the 15th to 18th Century.
Made in the Florentine factory of Ulisse Cantagalli it embodies different pottery influences of the late 1900's with it's resemblance of the Iznik style pottery combined with the ever present, once ruling Medici Family Crests.
Some small chips to the cut flower basins but overall in fine condition.
