SARREGUEMINES MANUFACTURE - Sandstone vase "Cathedral and coat of arms of Metz"

Dimensions:
Width: 7'' ½  19cm
Height: 17'' ⅜  44cm
Depth: 7'' ½  19cm

Origin:
France, late 19th century

Status:
Good condition

This vase, made at the end of the 19th century in salt sandstone called Lorraine sandstone, is signed Sarreguemines. Its incised decoration is enhanced with enamels. It refers to a dark period for the faience industry, the Franco-German war of 1870 and especially the loss of Alsace-Lorraine. We can presume that this German occupation is represented here in the background by these menacing crows.
A similar model with variations in shades, from the collections of the Sarreguemines Museum, is presented in the book "La Faïencerie de Sarreguemines" by Alain Benedick, published by ABM.
