Luchon in France is a spa with thermal baths. This could have been either something to use in the baths or a souvenir. The water fountain on the crest would tie in with this ... but the shamrocks have me stumped!

It's a souvenir of someone's trip to France.....how big is it what does the bottom look like.
Doesn't look "antique" to me at all....just sort of vintage.

Maybe you could romance it and say it was a litle thing Lance Armstrong picked up when he did his first Tour de France.

Those aren't shamrocks but clover, seen in vast expanses of this area. Forage for herds.

4 leaf clover too, for good luck! Clover where I'm from was 3 leaved but we often found 1 with 4 leaves & pressed it in a book & when "dry" displayed it in our rooms or on corner of pic frame inside with the photo of someone we liked.

here is another pic of the copper vase so tell me what you think now.it is about 4 1/4 inches or so tall with about 3 or so in width around base and about 1 1/4 inch opening at top.

What does the bottom look like? any sign it was ever part of something else?

I think Linda pegged it accurately straight off the bat. It's simply a souvenir, maybe vintage, not antique and of very modest value.
