Web Description: 
The form and decoration of this vase, which imitates Japanese carved jades, reflect the French interest in Japanese art (Japonisme) that peaked in Paris during the last quarter of the 19th century. This piece was most likely made in collaboration with Ernest Baptiste Léveillé (active 1869–1903).
