This rare, lidded asparagus cradle is a perfect example of French majolica, or barbotine, and is reminiscent of bundled asparagus with artichoke foliage decorations along its sides, the stems forming the dainty feet. It has drainage holes underneath and there is a matching platter. Made by the Longchamp faience in 1890.
The Longchamp faience was near Dijon in the Burgundy region and they made majolica asparagus and oyster services.
Dating from the 1890s and they were sourced from a private collection that was held for over fifty years.
