Standing 12.5 inches tall this rare art nouveau vase dating to circa 1890 is modeled and cast with sculptural bird family groups, flowers, pine cones and wheat sheaves in relief. The surface is patinated in rich green tones. It is signed F. Debon and bears the foundry mark of ‘Susse Freres Editeurs, Paris’. A similar model can be found in Alistair Duncan: ‘Paris Salons 1895-1914’ Vol. V.
