Wow! This one is truly a delight, hand painted in a Victorian style! Huge chrysanthemums painted in rich tones of purple, yellow and pink, all set against a background of greens, purples, blues and yellows. Four chrysanthemums on the front and three on the back, all nestled in a detailed spray of foliage and hand painted by the amateur artist, Kimmel, who has signed the bottom of the piece.
This striking cache pot stands 12 1/2 inches tall on four heavily gilded 1 1/4 inch ball feet. The top opening is 10 inches long and 5 3/8 across. A half inch wide band of gold encircles the top opening and a pair of gilded handles measuring 4 inches long, 2 1/2 inches across and raised a full half inch from the sides of the piece complete the lavish display. The gold shows only minimal wear and there are no chips, cracks or damages of any kind. See the last photograph for the Heinrich & Co Selb Bavaria underglaze mark and artist signature.
We've used this piece as both a breathtaking centerpiece filled to overflowing with cut flowers and a cache pot in the bath. It never fails to attract attention wherever displayed... Please feel free to ask any questions and thank you for visiting our shop…
