Outstanding cobalt Limoges vase with loads of gold embellishment, and a beautiful hand painted portrait. Stands nearly 18" tall, approximately 9" aross the widest spot, and weighs over 10 pounds. Portrait measures approx. 19-1/4" tall by 6-1/2" wide. Condition is excellent, with no chips, cracks, or repairs. Extremely little wear to the gold rim top opening. Signed by the artist, Angeli. Stamped with what appears to be two overglaze decorating marks. Most likely, one is for the portrait artist, and the other is for the gold embellishment artist. The red stamp is nearly identical to P. Merlin-Lemas (PLM) Mark #2. circa 1920's; with just a slight variation in wording.
