Yes, it does look very clean although there was a lot of limescale inside where it had been used for flowers over the years. A similar one with an umbrella online described as being marked Mosanic, and another one with a label, so I think maybe 1960s?

I haven't seen Mosanic in this exact colourway, usually more blue, not saying it's not, but almost
certainly Desvres.

This vase on the right has a similar palette, though unmarked as I remember.

Faiences de Desvres (France) - Page 2 Empty DELFT style pottery with rat - Geo Martel of Desvres, France.

Post by VeryGreennkeen on August 14th 2019, 9:51 pm

Recently acquired this  very odd item
I assume Dutch Delft by the typical sailing bots scene
But has a large blue figural Rat on the side.

The base has a monogram in manganese
which could be read as MG / GM
above xv111
which i guess is numerals for 18

Yes it's most unusual, not the normal "decor rouen", but Delft style wares were made there.
Not quite sure what it's for, and it could be missing a lid, mustard maybe.

Well, you are spot on about the lid, no cut out for spoon though.
Sorry should have shown that in first images.
Do you think the Numerals 18 could indicate date for 1918?
looks as though the 1025 is the shape number.

An egg cup maybe - with a lid to keep the egg warm?

Its a bit large for an egg cup measuring about 6" tall to the top of the cover,

The bowl opening is about 3" across.
So having looked into this a bit further i think it may be a play on words
being the french for Rat is Moucharder
and a mustard pot being Moutarde,
Quite amusing i guess, cant think why else you would associate a rat with food item?

Ah ha, nice to have the cover. Mustard pot is moutardier, so maybe right.

The other marks and numbers on these pieces are always a bit of a mystery,
but certainly early 20thC.
