A nice large organic/botanical form Sarreguemines French Art Nouveau production ceramic piece from 1900 that could best be described as something that would tickle Georgia O'Keeffe's fancy. The interior of the vase is glazed robin blue, while the exterior is decorated distinctively by prominent purple and golden regions on a floral form. The vase, in my mind, is quite erotic in form with strong contrasting colors between soft feminine type floral forms reminiscent of an iris or orchid flower. For the time, I cannot see this vase being presented publicly in a traditional family atmosphere…it would have caused quite the social stir. Dimensions: 10.75" (H) x 6.25" (W).
