Offered is a lovely antique majolica footed comport from the Sarreguemines majolica factory.
This exquisit antique bears the trademark of Sarreguemines with the super imposed U&C which dates this piece to have been made between 1860-1890 according to my book on marks.
This beautiful piece features the butterfly pattern, "PAPILION". You see a large blue butterfly around a bouquet of wild field flowers. It has superbly ornate and pierced handles. The foot is also decorated with wild field flowers. There is a large dragonfly and a smaller butterfly on the underside of the comport bowl. The rim and foot are lobed shape.
It is well marked as seen in photo 5. It measures 12 inches wide with handles and stands 5.5 inches tall.
Condition is excellent for its great age. There is overall crazing with little staining. The underside of one handle seems to have had a very small flat chip that was repaired and is not seen from any angle. photo 7. Overall in superb condition for antique majolica faience!!
