This is the most Exquisite and Graceful floral art composition upon a LARGE 16" Antique hand painted Limoges Charger, Fine Art Plaque or Chop Tray. Completely handpainted by an extraordinarily talented late 19th Century Artist. This very fine vintage work of floral porcelain artistry is a CREME DE LA CREME example of late 19th, early 20th Century American porcelain art, taught by old master porcelain artists and art professors: Franz A. Bischoff, Franz B.Aulich and George Leykauf, among others.
This beauty has been exceptionally painted in rich colors including forest green and burgundy wine, serene shades of gentle butter yellows and soft pastel pinks, all of which combine a fabulous background setting for the most Breathtaking and Tranquil Bouquet of Pink ~ Burgundy ~ and White Roses. 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. This is a very high quality hand painting upon very old French Porcelain in the naturalistic floral art style so beloved by the Victorians at the Turn of the Century. A Stunning, ONE-OF-A-KIND creation of Victorian Tea Roses in the CLASSIC FRENCH TEA ROSE ART STYLE.
This particular vintage French china mold is actually called a 'chop plate', and is entirely flat across 90% of its surface (curving up only slightly at the edges) such that it lends itself perfectly to being used as a ROUND TRAY, as well as a magnificent WALL ART PLAQUE hanging. It is Absolutely Stunning and would be beautiful placed under a Jardiniere, a Punch bowl, Tankard, Cider pitcher or Chocolate set.
This beauty is In Excellent to Near Mint condition. Sterling investment quality vintage fine Art-Porcelain, with the century old china painting in pristine condition, beautifully preserved within a lustrous glass overglaze finish. Bears the Tressemann and Vogt, T&V, mark 7, underglaze hallmark in green, circa 1892- 1907.
