Description In about 1872, Charles Haviland, the Limoges porcelain manufacturer, opened his Auteuil Studio in Paris. Under the direction of Félix Bracquemond, the etcher and friend of the impressionist painters, the Auteuil Studio briefly produced "Barbotine" wares, which combined an impressionistic handling of colors with elements of Japanese design, all rendered by hand. Jules-Auguste Habert-Dys (1850-1927) produced these vases in the Barbotine style.
