This is a fine example of an impressive vintage 1900 hand painted Limoges Guerin Scenic Tankard. This majestic beauty measures almost 15" tall....14-7/8" to be exact... She has been superbly decorated with a large "Flying Dragon" over a green and lavender floral arrangement. The opposite side of the Tankard is floral from top to bottom. The Artist has used shades of Green, lavender, and a creme yellow as background to the Dragon. A fancy gilded handle....is also decorated in a forest green. Note the "blown out" decor of the base....followed by a rich heavy gold gilding. The Tankard is in good condition and is without nicks, chips, or other damage....with some minor paint wear....with the gold being exceptional. I have had this Tankard for many years..with the original sticker still on the bottom...which states that the Tankard is Artist signed "Tulley". I can make out a "TU" in several places....but have a hard time finding the artist complete signature. It could be there....and I have missed it. The Tankard displays an early green Guerin mark [see photo]. This impressive looking piece will make a nice addition for your collection.
