Russian green vase ($175)
The owner believed it to be C19 Russian. It looks very similar to French faience work (tin enamelled earthen ware) later known as majolica (glaze which originated in the Italian town of Faenza 1600s)
Though there was a great deal of social intercourse between France and Russia, we tend to believe this vase is C19 French majolica.
