Hand painted china is so beautiful and decorative no matter if executed in a factory decorating department, professional studio or home-studio environment. The quality and subject matter of the finished product is what really matters.

Bawo & Dotter was established in New York City in the 1860's to import porcelain, especially from Limoges, into the USA. In the early 1870's they started the Elite Works in Limoges to decorate porcelains made by other factories. The company closed in 1932.

This lovely round covered jewelry/dresser jar is completely covered with hand painted nasturtium flowers in burnt orange and yellow combination with shaded pastel green leaves against an overall muted background of brown, tan, yellow, blue and green. The jar measures 8" across and 3 5/8" in height. The green mark, circa 1896-1920, is the B25f mark "Elite, underscored, over L, over France". There are some faint initials of the decorator. I feel this was decorated in a home-studio environment as pieces decorated by Bawo & Dotter usually have a red shield-shaped decorating mark on the items. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. A lovely piece in an impressive size.
