Muted colors and shades of brown, as well as rich flambé glazes are indicative of Émile Decoeur's work, and those characteristics certainly apply to this spherical enameled stoneware vase. The name attributes the idea that the vase, in its coloring and shape, resembles an ostrich egg. The speckled brown hues blend together, some lighter and some darker, creating discernible lines of color variation, especially on the back of the vase.

Signed with the artist’s mark "E. Decoeur."
