Fresh from a great Texas estate is this handpainted Limoges punch bowl with a grape motif and gold base and rim. Appropriately marked as shown this piece is guaranteed to be an authentic antique Limoges piece and not a reproduction. Apparently given as a gift in 1898, it has "Christmas 1898" on the bottom. The bowl measures 13 1/2" across the top and is 6" high. The piece is in overall excellent condition with no chips, cracks, hairlines and only minimal gold wear.
This piece came from a very fine Texas estate that we purchased. We will be listing numerous items from the estate so check back often. Texas residents to pay 8 1/4% sales tax or provide exemption information.
