Just a Magnificent Porcelain Art Heirloom Treasure ~ A Stunning Large Porcelain "MONUMENTAL VICTORIAN FRENCH ROSES JARDINIERE ~ PLANTER ~ POT" . This is an Absolutely BREATHTAKING Statement Piece! Both collectors and decorators will find this beauty very desirable as a decorative piece of Artwork!
~ It is a CREME DE LA CREME example of late 19th, early 20th Century American porcelain art, in the naturalistic floral style which was taught by old master porcelain artists and art professors: Franz A. Bischoff, Franz B.Aulich and George Leykauf, among others.
This particular piece is perhaps the "Finest" and the Most Exquisite "One-of-a-Kind" Hand Painted Jardinieres that I have had the pleasure to own. The pictures just don't do justice of how VERY LARGE this beauty is. Hand painted with an Absolute Stunning Bouquet of PINK, BURGUNDY, and YELLOW ROSES ~ nestled in wonderful multi-colored foliage. Each rose, fine leaf, and stem is painted with the utmost delicacy creating an utterly breathtaking still life palette ~ one can almost smell their intense piercing fragrance. The Artist has truly captured these wonderful roses in full bloom in a gorgeous garden bouquet, china painted in the naturalistic floral art style which was taught by the great old masters of American porcelain artistry around the Turn-of-the-Century. The interior has been painted in a soft tranquil sea-foam green. You will Definitely and Absolutely be overwhelmed by this piece ~ it is Exceptional beyond words.............. A truly Remarkable and Outstanding piece to add to your collection.
This Rare Beauty measures nearly an IMPRESSIVE AND STUNNING 38 INCHES IN CIRCUMFERENCE, THE OPENING MEASURES 8 3/4 INCHES IN DIAMETER AND STANDS nearly 11 INCHES TALL.
Overall Condition of this piece is EXCELLENT to MINT CONDITION ~ no chips, cracks, hairlines, paint loss, stains, or surface scratches. For accuracy purposes, I do note just a few porcelain glaze pops to the interior base. This beauty bears the Bernardaud & Co. underglaze factory mark 1, circa 1900. (I have not shown the mark in my listing, but would be very happy to forward a picture if requested).
This is truly Sterling quality, with the hand painting immaculately preserved!
