    I think these may have been individual flower vases for a table setting. I think magnolia flowers would look fabulous in those!

    This is the word I search for "entremets", normally there is a cover in wedgwood for example, but some swiss porcelain doesn’t' have one, if it is made for that purpose they do be six or twelve, today I make more search in books about french majolica I have at home, and if it is something with those two animals in european signification more than a very decorative effect.

    I just realized in your original link, it still seems active and there is a descendant of Massier there. They have a contact us.

    The size makes the difference, this frog was certainly made in a very small number due to the difficulty with big pieces and the prices are like Minton majolica in GB, the fact that it's a fountain part is a + in price estimation and results.
    The faked items fron Massier I've seen were really of poor quality, originals are just under Minton in quality.

    Good morning, wow...missed alot I see.

    That mark, looks like CLEMKNT MASSINS ;)
    Here are the two signatures for him on INH’s link for the majolica society. Additionally, there always is a period between the (A.M.) in all of the family’s marks that use it, but I can not see it on your linked piece. That said, can you list this on that auction site for me, we’ll both do good. :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious: Seem he gets a much better selling price over seas.

    @i need help, I agree that these seem to be elusive, but still the ones that are more current are only popping up here and without multiples of any particular one. I have sent your link a message and will follow up with the original link I posted as well. Hope to get a response and will post it here.

    I agree with @antidiem, that these are both a better piece and for the most part there seems to be a bit of dirt and twig inside as if a small planter for a table setting(else they are just old and dirty).

    After a little search, the mark under Alpes Maritimes can be the initials for Lucien Lévy-Dhurmer what explains the price at this auction.
    They are a big number of differents marks for this company, some are hand writen, more in the 20th century and others are prints.

    Found him interesting: He was born Lucien Lévy to a Jewish family in Algiers, French Algeria. In 1887 Lévy began making his living near Cannes in southern France, overseeing the decoration of ceramics. From 1886 to 1895 he worked as a ceramic decorator and then as artistic director of the studio of CLÉMENT MASSIER. Around 1892 he signed his first pieces of ceramics
