This is approx. 24" tall narrow piece - marked with a VC monogram -- I am sure it is European majolica, likely French, maybe Italian -- but would love to know exactly who made it -- Massier? And I would truly love to know if there might be another piece similar, a companion, perhaps facing the other way -- would love to have that!

    Hi, I Love This Piece ... The Colours Are Fantastic ... It Looks So Fragile It's A Wonder Those Poppies Have Survived So Long & Even Though I Collect Glass "Mainly" I'm Very Eclectic & Wouldn't Be Able To Pass This Up If I Saw It ... My Favourite Artist Is Brian Froud But His Faeries & Gremlins Are A Bit More Gruesome Than This ... Cheers Mark

    Yes - this piece is probably my favorite treasure - the one I would try to save if the house caught on fire! (knock-wood)

    I checked out the artist you mentioned - killer stuff -- http://www.worldoffroud.com/www/main.cfm -- he's created whole other worlds. I love his collage/interactive books with the "real" letters inside - reminds me of Nick Bantock's Griffin and Sabine books, which I have and love. http://www.nickbantock.com/Gryphon/Griffin_and_Sabine.html

    Oh my, now there are so many more things I want!

    Hi MsDow:
    I had been checking out some things on ebay and I saw a piece of Austrian majolica that looked very similar to this piece. It wasn't as beautiful or elaborate as yours, but you could tell they were similarities. So it could be a good chance your piece is Austrian.

    This is a really beautiful piece. The graceful movement and flow throughout the design is wonderful. I love these characteristics in art nouveau antiques.

    It is a very lovely piece. I love it! It looks like it is Italian majolica from Naples, the colors and delicate flowers are the key. I have basket in my collection which has some similarities colors and delicate material. It looks like it made of faience. Mine is not as elaborate though. I would love to have it in my collection : -)
