Extraordinary French Art Nouveau Foot Basin and Pitcher, signed, Rare pink, white and green


Extraordinary and Very Rare Antique Foot Basin and Pitcher from France
with hand-painted Art Nouveau floral decor in pink, white and green - just gorgeous!!
Made in the Art Nouveau period c. 1880-1890
Both pieces are signed by the artist.

French Art Nouveau enamelware pieces, which date from the 1880's to the 1890's are hardly found at all. Foot basins, in general, are also quite uncommon (regular round bowls for hand and face washing are the most common). The fact that these two pieces are still together as a set over a 120 years period makes them highly valuable and collectible. I've never come across one before.

They are in very good condition with some chipping along the bottom edges (please see the photos).
All chips will be sealed with museum-quality preservation wax.

Foot Basin: 17.75 in. wide X 8 in. high X 15in. deep
Pitcher: 11 in. wide )handle to spout)
13.5 in. high
8 in. diameter at the bottom and 5.5 in. diameter at the top

As always, I am here and delighted to answer any questions or to help you hunt down a sought after antique treasure!

Thank you for stopping in at Lasting Antiques!!
