Fleurs Sauvages

French Vase with Hand-Painted Impressionistic Floral Decor (LEO Design)

Like Impressionist painting of a century ago, this vase is decorated in the spontaneous, textured, and liberated manner of 1890’s France.  This Art Nouveau piece diverges wildly from its (same age) English Arts & Crafts cousin across the channel.

This vase, purchased from a London collector, is part of a large shipment of pottery, boxes, candlesticks, cufflinks and desk accessories recently-acquired in England.
