"Rare" Antique Austria Hand Painted Chocolate Pot with FACE ROSES and Amazing Gilded Art Work
Offered for your consideration is an exquisite porcelain, Austrian MASTERPIECE meticulously HAND PAINTED and decorated by a most talented, turn-of-the-century artist. The stately, gold finial is magnified by the rich teal, backdrop that has been accented with an intricate, embossed floral design. This delicate brocade design continues down the top...elegantly framing two, car-touches on each side filled with Spring flowers...the design concludes with a ring of gold beads around the slender "waist" of the chocolate pot. The interior of the graceful spout is also hand painted gold with more gold beading around the rim. And the magnificent, radiant gold face outlined in gold beads sits majestically under the spout...a feature rarely seen if ever on a Limoges mold. The uniquely designed handle, lavished in gold, is accented with large, teal enamel jewels.
Then there are the ROSES...a stunning, Victorian bouquet filled with vibrant pink and deep, scarlet roses grace the right side of the chocolate pot while a lush, trailing multicolored foliage highlights the left side. Reversed is a P.H. Leonard Austria hallmark used around 1906.
Without exception, this hand painted, antique Austrian beauty is in EXCELLENT CONDITION with no chips, cracks or paint flakes.
