Coronet Limoges is linked to porcelain ware manufactured in Europe and decorated in studios in Limoges, Paris and Germany before exportation overseas. George Borgfeldt was a New York importer of porcelain with decorating studios in Paris and Germany.
This beautiful pitcher/ewer was factory decorated using a technique called 'Mixtion', a process combining transfer designs along with hand painting. Circa 1910 it features clusters and single hibiscus blossoms in shades of deep red, lush pink and white nestled among variegated green and gray leaves and wild grasses against a background of pale creamy yellow with tan/brown highlights. The beaded rim and gracefully curled handle is gold encrusted, The base is encircled with a wide gold band outlined and delicately decorated with black tracery. The pitcher/ewer measures 9 3/4" in height and 5 1//4" across the base. It is stamped "Limoges France" with uppercase letters and a star in the center for the porcelain manufacturer and the Borgfeldt "Coronet" stamp, circa 1906-1920. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint and gorgeous.
