Haviland Limoges Marseille Shape Large Fruit Bowl Hand Painted Cherries Signed Ca. 1900

This Haviland Limoges scalloped edge,leaf shape, bowl is hand painted in colors of soft red, green and lavender. A perfect center bowl in what is called the Marseilles shape,its size lends it to use as a fruit or salad bowl as well. The dimensions are 10 ¼ inches long by 8 ¼ inches wide by 4 inches high.

The asymmetrical shape of the bowl has a scalloped edge with gentle ruffles at each end The red cherries and green leaves are massed in several groups around the bowl. The deep colors fade into a pale lilac The ornate gold scrolled handle is surrounded by the deepest cluster of color giving a rich exuberant appearance.

The size of the bowl and the fineness of the porcelain make this a very desirable piece. The under glaze white ware green mark of Haviland , France, is circa 1894-1931. I believe it dates to early 1900-10. It is signed underneath in gold by the artist, M. Rolls, and impressed with the number 2.

The condition is very good with no loss of paint or gilding. There is a small gold skip on the bottom edge of the handle. There are no chips, nor cracks, nor restoration. A gorgeous example of French porcelain.
