Decorative collectable floral Compotier, or footed compote, cake pedestal, in a gorgeous French country green 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 lovely was made in France, in the late 1800's. The pattern typical of the art nouveau iera with flowing floral and stylized designs.
Stunning cream earthenware with a gloss glaze, the transfers are crisp and beautifully detailed. In good condition for its age, there is some darkening in the bowl itself, commensurate with the age of this piece. This pattern is sought out by collectors for the its classic charm. A gracious addition to your collection of luxury French faience transferware, or to begin one. Makes an amazing host or hostess gift when presented with a home made cake! Measures 9~1/4" x 5"h.
