1901 fish jardiniere

I came across this jardiniere by John Pearson which is being sold by dealers I have not come across before nouveaudecoarts.com. They kindly allowed me to use the images on the site.

The jardiniere, which is quite large (approx. 8 inches tall), has four ‘hopeful looking fish’ which are all different, and which have the characteristic Pearson eyes. It has the ‘straight’ initials, is dated 1901 and has the pattern number 2699 (for a gallery of pieces with pattern numbers, see here).
