US$380 US$464
This exquisite Barbotine sauceboat has a pretty scalloped edge and is decorated with artichoke heads and flowers. It dates from the nineteenth century and would be a lovely addition to a collection of antique Majolica or a tablescape. Underneath is the makers mark from Fives-Lille, the atelier of Antione Gustave De Bruyn (1838-1916). It is an anchor with the initials DB. It was sourced from a private collection that was held for over fifty years. 

Antoine Gustave De Bruyn (1838-1916) was a Belgian who created a factory in Fives-Lille making whistles and clay pipes. He expanded his production to stoneware, earthenware, majolica and art pottery. He became one of the largest and most successful producers of French pottery and collaborated with French furniture designer Louis Majorelle (1859-1926) and French jewelry and glass designer Rene Lalique (1860-1945).
