French Faience Armorial Vase

A lovely late 18th Century Onion Form Vase with the Coat of Arms of the Dukes of Brittany and the word AMAVIE underneath.

It is entirely hand painted, and the colours are still bright and glowing.

The vse is of an onion form, though really more Garlic shaped.

It stands about 4.5 inches or 11.5cm tall and bar a couple of little nicks to the glaze, is in very good condition.

Plenty of photographs below..........

It will be carefully packed to foil the postmen's devilish intents.........

The boring bits............

Despite everything written below, I actually enjoy selling on e bay........................ it makes money and satisfies the masochistic part of my nature............

Most customers are great, even when things go wrong, as they sometimes will.

Our Feedback is good, especially considering that most of the things we sell are delicate breakable vintage items.

But now that we can't leave negative feedback for mad buyers, this really is the only way..........

I post daily, unless the car breaks down or we're flooded, or the mice running this computer escape from their little wheel, or I have a terrible hangover from celebrating with Krug Champagne our latest e bay sale, or something.
