This egg shaped perfume holder would be a beautiful addition to any Limoges or perfume casket collection.
The egg opens at the top by pushing down on the lever. Inside you can see the two rectangular areas which held the perfume bottles. The porcelain is bright white with intricate gold leaf scrolling around both sides of the egg and the porcelain foot of the casket. The center of both sides of the egg feature bouquets of roses, daisies and tulips in gold with fine red outlines.
Albert Goumot-Labesse was the son-in-law of Camille Tharaud and director of the Tharaud Factory. In 1948 he opened his own decorating studio and in 1954 formed Goumot-Labesse Porcelain. From 1977 the company was Goumot/Tharaud and used a Tharaud mark.
BACKSTAMP: The backstamp features "G.L. Limoges France". I believe this to be a Goumot-Labesse marking from sometime during the time period of 1954 - 1977.
CONDITION: This piece is in great condition. It has very little wear on the gold painting and no chips, cracks or repairs. The clasp opens easily and closes tightly.
MEASURES: 5" tall x 3" in diameter
