Large & impressive is this well decorated vintage 1900's J.P.L. Limoges France hand painted Floral Dragon Handle Pillow Vase.
One of the largest Pillow Vases made, the impressive hand painted beauty stands 9-3/8" tall & about 8-1/2" wide. The Artist has decorated one side with large Purple Clemantis on stem and leaf against a background of shadow leafing and colors of creme, light creme yellow, creme blue, creme red/brown and several shades of creme green. A heavy gilded top rim and two large over sized gilded Dragon Handles grace the sides of the Vase which are 5-1/2"+ long. The opposite side of the Vase has been wonderfully decorated with large "Pink Poppies" against a background of shadow leafing and the same creme colors found on the front side.
The Floral Vase is in very good condition and totally damage of nicks, chips, cracks, or other damage with one tiny fleck just above the base. The gold is just outstanding and is closer to pristine than excellent.
The gorgeous Floral Vase displays a "J.P.L. France" Limoges mark and has been signed by the Artist, "C. Nesbit".
The large Floral Vase with its well decorated Clemantis and Pink Poppies shows exceptionally well. The brilliant and large, almost pristine, gilded gold handles gives the over all appearance a dramatic and impressive appeal.
