Awesome Limoges Porcelain Bowl ~ Decorate with Rainier Cherries by Pickard Artist J. Heinz ~ Mavaleix Limoges France / Pickard Studio Chicago France 1895-1905

The Rainier cherry is the sweetest, prettiest and most pampered of cherries, as delicate as it is lucrative. If the wind blows too hard, the cherry bruises from rubbing against another cherry. If it rains more than a day, the cherry busts its skin. This artist definitely reflexes this definition through his masterpiece. He has painted a large cluster of vibrant red and yellow cherries on one side of the bowl and has extended a branch with a smaller cluster down onto the bottom of the bowl. The cherry clusters are painted on green stems nestled by beautifully green and teal colored leaves and brown branches. The background this wonderful piece consists of amber, green and white all flowing graciously together. Keeping with the tradition of Pickard there is a golden band on the inside rim. Inside the band are bright red cherries and green leaves with other leaves and branches in black outline. The rim is nicely scalloped and painted with gold. Artist `J Heinz.' has signed on one of the golden brown leaves. J Heinz is listed in Alan B. Reed's reference book 'Collector's Encyclopedia of Pickard China,as being capable of good commercial renderings of fruits and flowers. Heinz subsequently worked for Donath Studio and also for Pitkin & Brooks. While with the latter, he produced a close copy of Pickard's Carnation conventional design. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
