French Antique Limoges Porcelain Clock Hand Painted Purple Violets
Offered for sale is this stunning, Limoges, porcelain clock featuring beautiful, Victorian bouquets filled with purple, African violets expertly hand painted on a snow white, backdrop that has been accented with a delicate lavender, rose blush and soft, lemon yellow. The exquisite, raised and embossed, porcelain details have been highlighted with a brilliant, radiant gold. Topping off the elegant crown is a gold lattice design. The romantic face features ebony black, Roman numerals hand placed on a highly ornate, gold on gold background. On the brass back plate, is impressed Germany. It stands 10.5 inches and, at the widest point, measures 6 inches. Reversed is a Coiffe Limoges hallmark used between 1891 and 1900. It appears the clock does indeed keep accurate time but I cannot guarantee that.
Without exception, this hand painted, French antique time piece is in excellent - sterling condition with no chips, cracks or paint flakes.
Certainly a rare heirloom to be treasured for years to come!
