Antique Pickard Tea Cup Saucer Hand Painted Violets Artist Signed
This stunning, Pickard pair features, on both the cup and saucer, romantic bouquets filled with deep purple, African violets nestled in lush greenery and highlighted with a radiant, coin gold. The cup stands, from its golden rim to its pedestal base, 2 inches and the saucer measures nearly 5 inches in diameter. The talented, Pickard artist, Howard Reury signed the cup and initialed the saucer. Reversed on the saucer is a Philip Rosenthal Bavaria and a Pickard Studio hallmark with the latter dated between 1905 and 1910.
With the exception of the expected light surface, scratches on the gold, these hand painted and artist signed American beauties are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or paint flakes.
