    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 : -)

      I've been trying to find out info on my own majolica piece. In the process, I found this site. http://www.ebay.com/gds/Majolica-A-Guide-to-the-Authentic-Repros-Fakes-/10000000001231695/g.html The picture at the top, which is tiny, seems like it might be related to your piece . . . You have to blow it up big to see. She doesn't seem to have info on it, however. But you might ask where she found the pic, or use tineye.com to track down the source. could lead to more info.
