A stunning ovular hand painted French footed cache pot vase, hand painted on a shaded green background with the most glorious scene of birds perched on the branches of a cherry tree.
Although it is not marked, we feel that the vase is a Limoges blank that was hand painted by a talented artist sometime in the early 20th century. There were several Limoges companies that made this blank for decoration. The artist, "Dean," signed the vase on the bottom. The feet and handles are highlighted in gilt.
The vase is in excellent condition with a minute amount of gilt wear mainly on the feet. The beautiful enamels are still lustrous and vivid after all these many years; a fabulous piece to sit on top of a French vanity or desk to use for daily disposals.
Size: 8 ¼" H x 6 ¼" L
