What a great way to spruce up a table setting all year long, and especially for various holidays! A large collection of Currant motif pieces, each hand painted with wonderful detail and color! The Deep Fruit Bowl with pedestal base has a very detailed white ware Rose carved border and is painted with lovely Currants against a background of classical blushed hues. It displays beautifully with the four delicate Berry Bowls which have the same Currant motif inside, as well as a painted exterior of red (see last picture). The four tankards available with this set were painted by different artists of the time that used the same Limoges Porcelain mold. Rare to accumulate such a set, each being its own beautiful creation.
Note that more close-up pictures are available for each item upon request. The fruit bowl set and tankards can be sold separately (see below) but we are offering them all together at a discount! For those interested, the Fruit Bowl and Berry Bowl set alone would cost: $225 and the Four Tankards together would cost:$ 350.
