Not exactly decor-Rouen, more Moustiers colours, but probably made in Desvres.

The more modern faience tends to be white clay.

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.
