Early decorative collectable floral Compotier, or footed compote, cake pedestal, in a gorgeous French Teal Blue Transferware pattern. I love antique low 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 shells as a centerpiece. This lovely was made in the 19th century, in an Art Nouveau Iris flower design. Incised with Terre de Fer on the bottom.
From an estate collector, made of cream earthenware with a high gloss glaze, the transfers are crisp and beautifully detailed. In extremely good condition for its age, this pattern is so highly sought out by collectors that it is getting quite rare to find. A gracious addition to your collection of luxury French faience, or to begin one. The color is a beautiful French Blue Green.
