Jardinière with landscape

Haviland & Co. American and French
Decorator Emile Justin Merlot French

Not on view

Ceramics decorated using the barbotine method of painting with colored liquid slips required a flat canvas-like surface on which the artist could paint. Hence new forms were developed with flat sides, like this jardinière. The pond scene, in the Barbizon style, recalls landscapes by Charles-François Daubigny (1817–1878).
