Another recent acquisition which has me puzzled. The piece looks very French, 1920s-30s but I haven't been able to find the pattern anywhere.
It's a very nice quality item. There's an intaglio moulded pattern infilled with blue enamel. The finial is in the form of a tropical bird , decorated with sprayed on enamels in various colours. The base & rim have been very finely polished. There are no marks that I can see anywhere on the piece.
I think the bird once had a crest or similar on its head which has since broken off as there's a rough, unenamelled strip just on the top of its head.
Diameter is approx. 9 cm
