John Vogt founded a decorating studio in 1850 to decorate china for the export trade. As time progressed, a second son, Gristave Vogt took over the Limoges branch in 1870 and partnered with Emilien Tressamaines in the early 1880's. In 1891 they purchased two small porcelain factories for the manufacture of high-quality decorated ware for export to the USA. Also in 1891, they were commissioned to produce dinnerware for President Harrison.

This fantastic creation is from there very first production year and is stamped in green "T & V" in a rectangle mark. This stamp was used only in 1891. The bowl resembles an open flower with six pointed pedals forming the top. It is decorated on the interior and exterior with golden yellow dandelion blossoms as well as grayish tan plumes of flowers gone to seed. The colors are soft green-gray, tan, light brown, gray and golden yellow. The rim has a wide border of brushed gold, while the underside of the rim and base rim is decorated with a delicate, detailed gold scroll and tracery design. The bowl measures 10" across and 2 5/8" in depth. I have never seen dandelions used as a decorating subject; this is beautiful as well as unusual. There are no cracks, chips, paint wear or repairs; there are two minor flakes on the base rim, one interior and one exterior side (see first & seventh photo, exterior flake as been touched-up at some time). Great T & V Limoges piece.
