I have for your consideration a fabulous Limoges tankard/pitcher bearing the Tressemann & Vogt underglaze mark 5 (circa 1892) as well as the T&V overglaze decorating mark 16b (circa 1907).
This marvelous pitcher/tankard is one of the largest Limoges molds standing 15.25" tall. It is done in the highly collected holly and berry design that has graced the tables at many holiday events. This beauty has the gently fluted or ribbed design with raised flourishes around the bulbous base which is sponged with gold. Sprigs of variegated green holly dotted with crisp red berries are scattered around the top and bottom of the pitcher/tankard and pop against the deep rich jade green background. These snippets of holly and berry also adorn the middle and contrast just a nicely against the creamy white background porcelain. Adding texture and depth, the green holly leaves as well as red berries are embellished with raised white brush strokes.
The gently scalloped mouth rim of the pitcher/tankard and gracefully arched handle is covered in gold and brings a lovely sense of elegance and richness to the piece.
The tankard/pitcher is in nearly pristine condition. There is no paint loss, scuffs or scratches to the hand painted holly and berry decor. There are no flea bites, chips, flakes, cracks, hairlines or spiders. There is but minimal gold wear to only a small section of the handle.
If you are a collector of this particular Limoges holly and berry pattern, this is a piece you won't want to miss!
