Artist
Veuve Perrin in French means "Widow Perrin." Madame Perrin succeeded her husband in producing faience after his death.

Commentary
Pair of Faience Potpourri with gold, beads, miniature landscapes with figures, and ajouree tops.

The reputation of Marseilles, France, for faience production chiefly rests upon the fine enamel-painted faience made during the 18th century. The painted enamel decorations in the Rococo style were executed in a subtle free-flowing manner that imbued it with spontaneity and effortless charm.
