Most Unusual Antique Limoges Porcelain Punch bowl Singed by the Artist Yvonne Klapec.. I think her work is some of the finest painting I have seen.. The roses have much depth and look like you can pick and smell them.. This bowl is marked with 2 Limoges T&V France marks. Overglaze and underglaze. This is the same punch bowl featured in the Limoges At Home book by Schiffer publications, which much of my collection is featured in a few of the latest books. John Vogt (1815-1906) was born in Germany to a family of porcelain and glass retailers. In 1840 he opened an import house in New York. In the 1850s he opened an office in Limoges and soon began decorating porcelain in Limoges for export.
His son Charles Vogt (d1886) and his nephew Frederic Dose (d1908) joined the New York company in 1865 and traded as Vogt & Dose, which also had a decorating studio in New York. Dose took over in 1886, succeed by Gustave Vogt whose son Charly managed the New York operations, which closed in 1931.
A second son, Gustave Vogt (1849-1937), took over the Limoges branch by 1870 and partnered with Emilien Tressemanes in the early 1880's. In 1891 they bought two small porcelain factories in Faubourg Montjovis (Limoges) and made high quality whiteware for export to the USA. The company was commissioned in 1891 to produce a dinner service for President Harrison.
Tressemann retired in 1907 and Gustave Vogt became sole owner and changed the name to Porcelaine Gustave Vogt. In 1919 Martial Reynaud bought the company and continued using the T&V mark as well as his own Reynaud mark. Reynaud porcelain remains in business today.
This is 6" h x 13" with a nice scallop edge to it.. little gold wear and free from damage.
