THIS IS AN AMAZING VINTAGE LIMOGES CORSET VASE. THE ROSES ARE OUTSTANDING. THE COLORS ARE BRILLIANT. THIS IS A VERY RARE LARGE PIECE OF LIMOGES.
This RARE and elegant and seductive Limoges Corset vase with hourglass shape transcends time! During the Victorian Age, a woman's desire was to be married by the age of 21 years and have a waist size smaller than her age. Corsets were laced so tightly that women would suffer numbness & frequently have fainting spells! Not only does this Corset Vase mimic the feminine shape, the applied handles rest at the side like a pair of arms, with hands resting at the hips, conveying a sense of attitude & empowerment! This amazing Corset Vase is exceptionally tall, adding to its sensual appeal. It measures approximately 16 3/4" T x 9 1/4" W x 9" in diameter (27" circumference) at the widest part. The vase is spectacular! It is fabulous. The colors are vibrant and crisp. There are no chips, repairs or cracks. This is the most sought after William Guerin blank. Although I cannot find a signature, the pictures leave no doubt that this was done by a master artist of the time. This "Rose Lady" is a One-of-a-Kind Victorian Heirloom for the most Serious Limoges Porcelain Collector!
