Absolutely stunning 1900’s German Pot Pourri Vase and Cover
The Pot Pourri Vase, an early form of air freshener – became part of the repertoire of the great ceramic factories, of the 18th and 19th centuries.
Although the 18th century was known as the Age of Elegance, the people of the time were not known to have scrupulous hygiene.
Pot Pourri vases first appeared at the French courts, which, though magnificent, was by legend inclined towards a very rich melange of odours, the potpourri thereafter
spread through fashionable Europe.
