DESCRIPTION: This charming antique candle holder is unusual and rarely found. On white porcelain, the base is decorated with medleys of delightful pink roses offset with green leaves and accented with gold scrolls. The piece is skillfully hand painted with delicate artistry. Gold outlining accents are found on the three legs and the neck is painted in a substantial 5/8” band of gold.

La Porcelaine Limousine of Limoges France manufactured china, coffee and tea sets, handpainted china, vases, and decorative pieces. White wares were produced in France and painted by American painters, especially dresser accessories. From the Martial Redon family of porcelain history, LP held ownership toward the end of a long and storied industry brand. Originating in 1850, the company evolved through ownership change and remained committed to producing quality pieces for the home.

WHY I LIKE IT: It’s beauty is in the understated simplicity and floral design. The contemporary shape is anchored by ornate feet that exhibit a lovely mix of design styling.
