Hand painted china is beautiful and unique as it portrays the artists emotions and visions for the subject he or she is creating. This beautiful hand painted pudding/ferner bowl, circa 1900, was created in a small home studio environment by a very talented individual with great attention to detail and subject naturalism.
This lovely bowl is surrounded by four cartouches of red, ripe cherries on delicate brown stems, nestled among clusters of leaves in soft hues of teal, white, tan and green. The background is a variegated pallet of pastel blue, yellow and green. The bowl has a wonderful sculptured form with a gold gilt edge and embossed scrolls.
The piece measures 6 3/8" across and 2" in depth. It is stamped "T & V Limoges France Depose", the mark of Tressemann & Vogt porcelain company, circa 1892-1907. Unfortunately the talented artist did not sign their piece of art. There are no cracks, chips, repair or paint wear; near mint condition.
