    I saw this in a thrift store and I kept passing it up, but there was something elegant about it. It has style in the way that the bottom is round but the top looks like smashed in the sides to form more like a slot than a circle. I will try to add a pic. Anyway, I love the color and the birds are pretty and whimsical. I like the band of design at the upper part of the vase. I do see a signature which I know I have seen before. For some reason I believe it is a common company, but I forgot who it stands for. So I think it is Ha. C over a capital L
    then it has a few 10s on it. Help anyone??? Thank you for your input and tell me what you think. (Obviously I haven't washed it yet.)

      You can probably find more about it by searching those marks associated with Haviland/Limoge, I think that's what those marks stand for. It's a lovely vase!

      On picture 3, can you see the design under the bird flying? That is what called my attention.

      This is what I found out: It is an original Antique Félix Bracquemond Haviland 1880s " Meadow Visitors" Signed Vase Limoges. Thank you all.

      That's what I loved about it plus that design that almost looks like Greek key around the top half.

      Can you believe it was just there among dirty plain vases. I couldn't but it was so different and looked rich even dirty.
