This impressively sized urn is marked on the bottom, “Sarreguemines/1906//H”, “Made in Germany” with the Lorraine Coat of Arms . Nicolas-Henri Jacobi along with his two partners established the first Sarreguemines factory in 1790 in France. According to the Treaty of Frankfurt signed on May 10, 1871, which ended the Franco-Prussian War, the French department of Moselle was anected to Germany. With a brilliant base of cobalt blue and highlights, goldish yellow leaves wrap around the base with additional floral work extending about 1/3 of the way up the entire urn.
