Decorative collectable floral Compotier, or footed compote, cake pedestal, in a gorgeous French Blue Transferware pattern. I love antique 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 aesthetic lovely was made by Choisy-le-Roi in the mid to late 19th century. 1804. The pattern is an aesthetic flower design, with birds, and insects, gorgeous!
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. Measures 8~3/4" x 4"h.
