A fine green and black Majolica pedestal made by the Sarreguemines Pottery which took its name from the town of Sarreguemines, Lorraine, France in which it was based. From the earliest years their designs followed the most avant-guard styles and fashions. The Orientalist trends which were strong during the Romanticist years from 1830 to 1840 were followed by the Japanese styles, evident in this piece, which spread widely throughout Europe between 1860 and 1900. The Sarreguemines name is stamped on the inside of the pedestal. Photos before restoration.
French, circa 1890.

Notes: The Sarreguemines Pottery was established around 1790 by Nicholas-Henri and Paul-Augustin Jacobi and their partner Joseph Fabry. In 1800 Paul Utzschneider took over the management and it was from that time that the company became famous for its Majolica work and made the town of Sarreguemines into one of the most important centers for ceramics in Europe. It was responsible for supplying many of the tiles used to construct the Paris Metro. The Company ceased production in 2007 and the firm was subsequently liquidated.
