This beautiful amphora-form 19th century soft paste porcelain vase is unmarked, but I have a pair of these in the exact same mould but in cobalt with raised gold enameling, and those are maker marked M. Redon, Limoges, with a 19th century mark. I'm certain this one is also by that same opulent decorator of Limoges porcelain goods. This one is even more elaborate than my pair of cobalt blue ones, however, and has a jewel-like feel to it. So lovely, and as close to pristine as any antique item you'll ever find. Just stunning! Hot pink with loads of gold enamel, including swags of bas relief jewel beads. Accents of turquoise enamel in jewel-dots further enhances, as does the Greek key motif along bottom and upper rim of the amphora-shaped vase. Stands on figural cabriole legs that are hooved. . . such fabulous works I have from this Limoges maker. I'm keeping the cobalt vases, but parting with this pink one. I'm certain it won't last long. It is 7.25" tall and has lion heads and hooves decorating the 3 cabriole legs.
Very good to excellent condition throughout, I don't see anything to report that would diminish either the value or your pleasure in owning this elegant porcelain work of art. Almost too pretty to just be a "vase", isn't it. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines, no restoration, and if there's any wear on the gold or raised dots of enamel, I have not yet found it.
