French Art Vase-Pottery Vase-Monacera Monaco-Black, Saling Ship, Coral
Would you look at what I have found this time? Stunning is the first word that comes to mind, what a magnificent piece this is! I cant find enough words to describe it. Very few of these are found on this side of the pond. It is a French maker By the name of "Monacera from Monaco". This one is the largest example I have seen so far with a fantastic shape and two exaggerated, yet understated handles -- very art deco. The hand painted art is something else, looks like Salvador Dali to me. I wish I could post more photos need more to show all the different details on both sides. The ship is a large sailing vessel with flag flying and pounding through the waves, clouds in the sky and birds in the distance. And under the waves a Coral reef with Sea Fans, Sea Shells and many others magical creatures. Even the inside has a beautiful Turquoise color glaze. Appears gloss black but it started as a dark green under glaze you can see it on the last photo with mark and there is also the original sticker too. 13 1/4" tall 7 1/4" @ rim 5 3/8 @ base.
