Autumn is Here - part X


Denbac French Art Nouveau Covered Pot with Botanical Bas Relief and Glazes of Caramel, Tan and Gold Dust (LEO Design)


Dressed in glazes of rusty, fallen Autumn leaves—with just a glint of metallic golden-bronze—this French Art Nouveau ceramic covered pot is animated with organic bas relief botanical elements: swaying leaves and twigs.  It's the perfect size for keeping something special, perhaps those souvenir ticket stubs from flights to cherished holidays.  Or something more mundane, like collar stays, cotton swabs or potpourri.  The covered pot was made by Denbac around 1910.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.

More Autumnal Offerings tomorrow and in the days to come.
