Lidded vase/jatbpale blue glazed vessel with blue, green and red decoration. Design elements in clause birds, butterflies, leaves, branches, chrysanthemums, 'japanese' bridges, villages.
This is marked Drie Klokken and I am hoping it is an authentic item. The wear to the rims of lid and vase and rim of base seem so. I am wondering if it can be dated? Approximately would be fine. I bought it at auction in Australia as part of the sale of a collection of fine ceramics, but with not much info available.
24cm widest diameter at girth; 10cm at top opening; 45cm high including lion.
This is clearly a French copy from around 1920 made by the Martel factory in Desvres (North France).

Thank you for this elucidation. Very kind of you. How very naughty of them to copy the mark as well!
You say, 'clearly' and I'd appreciate your telling me the things that betray it as a later copy - just so I learn something about a subject of which I am clearly ignorant!
Kind regards, Maryanne.
Clearly if you can compare the two to each other; it is the coloring, the glaze, harshness in marking and the model. Combination of things for the trained eye, but hard to express in words.
Thank you Robert! Very kind of you.
As they say,’caveat emptor’ but it would help to have an original against which one can compare. You have certainly trained my eye a little better!
