Vintage hand-painted Limoges porcelain basket dish with floral design - violet and yellow pansies - and a gold handle - made by Tressemann & Vogt, Limoges France. Artist signed by M. French in gold paint on the bottom. T&V is the mark for Tressemann & Vogt, Limoges France.
Basket handle is hand-painted gold. Hand-painted violet and yellow bouquet floral design is covered by over-glaze. Interior has pearlized (rainbow) cast to it.
Unusual six-sided basket design measures 5-3/4 " in diameter at the widest spot x 4-1/4" high to the top of the handle. Not sure if this is for candy; condiments; or a small floral arrangement. It appears to us to be Victorian-style in design, but we a bit out of our league on Limoges - we just saw it and liked it.
Could be 19th or early 20th century. Very clean piece - no chips or cracks.
