This cup is signed Albert which we feel is Albert Bronsillion due to the style of the beautiful roses. He has added a wonderful pink rose and bud to one of the cup using various shades of pink and white. Adding raised white enamel to the petals he gave the roses a true depth and realistic look. Around the roses he has a light green and yellow background with green leaves and brown and green stems nestled around the flowers. On the other sided of the cup is a small group of green leaves on the white background. The inside of the cup has a pinkish beige band on the upper rim with a stem of green leaves on the with background. The saucer has the same white background, green leaves and pinkish beige band. Both pieces have been trimmed in gold. Artist A. Bronsillion is a listed and featured French artist in many of the leading publications regarding collecting antique hand painted Limoges porcelain art. Other examples of his work can be found in, "Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain, First Edition," by Mary Frank Gaston, also in Debby DuBay's, "Living With Limoges,". There are no chips, cracks, or crazing, manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
