Rare Antique French Art Pottery by Leon Pointu Blue Vase Pot

About the Item

A large stoneware vase of Japoniste inspiration, of rare double-spout form with twin handles, covered with a flowing brown and pale blue drip-glaze over a deep blue body, by the French art ceramist Leon Pointu (1879-1942), the son of Jean Pointu (a member of the famous ‘Ecole de Carries’ group at Saint-Amand-les-Eaux) with whom he worked before eventually taking over his studio. Marked with incised signature ‘Pointu’.    In perfect original condition with no restoration.     Please note that the flash photography may make the colors slightly brighter than they are in real life. It appears to my eye to be have a slightly green tint to the blue in real life too. What can be certain is it is breathtaking in both.          Tags: French Riviera colour palette
