Beautiful plant or flower pot, from a series illustrating the finest of Faience porcelain. Beautiful original lithograph printed in colour by Ris-Paquot in Amiens, for "Histoire des Faiences de Rouen", published in Paris circa 1870 by Eugene Delaroque.

Faience porcelain was the first "soft" porcelain, created early in the 18th century by Louis Poterat, sieur de Saint-Etienne, a potter of Rouen in France. This beautiful soft coloured, warm milky white translucent earthenware, is traditionally decorated by foliated patterns and floral designs of typical French style, or ornamented by coloured designs in imitation of the old Chinese and Japanese porcelain.
