Decorative collectable floral Compotier, or footed compote, cake pedestal, in a gorgeous French Blue Transferware pattern. I love antique ironstone stands like this, they are just as happy to display your world famous birthday cake as appetizers, cheese, fruit, or simply hold an arrangement of flowers as a centerpiece. This lovely was made in the mid to late 1800's, the pattern is an Art Nouveau Cyclamen design, with an ornate border encircling the rim.
From an estate collector, with a high gloss glaze, the transfers are beautifully detailed. In good condition for its age, this pattern is so highly sought out by collectors that it is getting quite rare to find. There is some discoloration inside the bowl as shown, please look at the close-ups. A gracious addition to your collection of luxury French ironstone, or to begin one. Marked with the anchor for L G and Terre de Fer on the bottom.
