Large Hand Painted Roses and Famous Artist Signed Compote
Presented is this absolutely magnificent, two handle porcelain compote expertly hand painted and signed by the famous, china painting artist from California, Thomas Peter Sophus Jorgensen. Jorgensen, who was born in Copenhagen, Denmark on November 2, 1879 moved to Oakland, California in 1903 where he established a china painting studio. Up until his death on September 8, 1943, his artwork was, as it is today...highly collectible!
This large and impressive, work-of-art features on both sides, as well as on the interior of the bowl, light and dark, pink tea roses nestled in lush greenery. Each petal on the romantic bouquets were meticulously hand painted on an iridescent backdrop on the interior and a smoky grape, soft ecru, coco brown and harvest yellow, backdrop on the exterior. Magnificent, extra large dual handles, the round pedestal base and border are highlighted with a radiant, Roman coin gold. This Jorgensen masterpiece stands, from its rim to its base, 6 inches and from one reticulated, golden handle to the other, is an impressive 14 inches. The bowl measures 10.5 inches in diameter. Reversed is Jorgensen's handwritten signature.
This spectacular hand painted and artist signed beauty is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or paint flakes.
