Antique Limoges Candlestick Hand Painted Cherubs Angels Roses Signed Dated 1899
Lovely, T&V Limoges candlestick featuring three chubby cherubs meticulously hand painted on a snow white, backdrop that has been highlighted with touches of powder blue. One cherub is playing a lively tune on his mandolin while the other, two dance to the rhythm while holding on to garlands of pink, tea roses tied with mint green, ribbons. On the front, the talented artist initialed as well as dated their masterpiece, '99. This work-of-art on porcelain stands, from its radiant gold, decorated rim to its scalloped base, 6 inches. Reversed is a Tressemann & Vogt Limoges hallmark used between 1892 and 1907.
Without exception, this hand painted, artist signed and dated, French antique beauty is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or paint flakes.
