This biscuit planter lacquered with an original zinc sound on the inside comes from the Faïencerie de Toul-Bellevue. Circular in shape, it rests on three feet. The body of the vase is black. All around, drawings with Asian connotations are affixed. There are stylized fans or rolls of paper (the latter being of Asian origin) of pale pink color. Butterflies, a bird or branches decorated with flowers are found on its elements. Around the edges, golden flowers and leaves contrast with the dark background of the planter. The colours are shimmering, giving a lot of relief to the composition as they are chromatically opposed to the black background. On the collar, plant motifs recall the drawings of the belly. The choice of a Japanese repertory illustrates the attraction of 19th century artists for everything related to the Far East.
