    This one is one of the first things Sergio bought to Dorita. We have never been able to read or understand the backstamp, but the silver is marked as French, second picture. The other thing, I try to catch in the first picture, is if the clearest spots is a signature? I love the way the clay is feel when you catch in your hand, is not so cold as porcealin and is velvety. Can any of the french collectors tell us something about this vase? Thanks David and Agustin for your interest I changed the picture with the backstamp as you can see it is not clear but it is like it actualy looks. It has 19 cm high and is heavy 450 grams. I also change the picture with the silver hallmark so you can see the other one.

      hi kivatinitz, not millet vase, usually signed with initials PM in stencil type. the backtramp under the bleue one is a number 69 i've seen it using photoshop contrasts ... can you make abetter pic of the bleu stamp very close and in front of it with less lighting? the bleue backtamp when you turn it seems to figure a human face like in coins ( i see somthing like that); prbably a face like napoleon with a "couronne de laurier".... the silver mark does not look french, i dont see the "minerve" usually for french sterling, you have the silver mark (square with crop angles"+ the maker mark. in a "losange"

      well i'm back and kiva you was right for the silver stamp it is used for: small objects exported from 11 July 1840 to 1 April 1879

      so thats why i didn(t know this special hallmark. now it will help if you can find the maker mark-)

      stunning!!

      Hola Kiva, no alcanzo a ver la marca, seria bueno que pusieras una foto mejor para poder ayudarte. Tengo una corazonada, busca en las ceramicas de Clement Massier ??? esta tiene muchisimo parecido con algunas de ellas y en particular la parte ceramica con una que tiene un pequeño adornito en plata. Si no podes sacar una mejor foto seria muy importante que transcribas perfectamente lo que esta estampado y lo que dice la marca circular azul. Saludos Ag.

      Amazing find!

      dear augustin ,in veniceclay artist website,,get mystakes.... the vase "Alphonse Cytere – 1936" is not a cytere vase by a pottery by eugene baudin ....

      an cytere did not porcelain, KIVATINITZ vase is a porcelain, i've still not found the maker mark, the silver mark is is used for: small objects exported from 11 July 1840 to 1 April 1879 so it couldent be definitely cytere-)

      he owned the rambervillers factory in 1891.

      regards.

      plesae kiva,i saw you added the silversmith mark-) its is too hard to see tyhe mark on your picture..... you could look here to identify the maker please. search only in the period 11 July 1840 to 1 April 1879. when we get the maker, i can found easely the ceramist-)
