***One of the most delicate pieces of porcelain i have seen in a long time, a buttertub with its insert ~ all pieces are hand painted forget me nots with gold coin and in excellent to mint condition. the butter tub is un marked ,the matching hand painted relish tray is currently listed separately....the inside of the butter tub has a gorgeous luster glaze ....both pieces have been hand painted with the most delicate soft baby blue forget me nots. there is a heavy gold trim that accents each piece....there is a tiny bit of wear commensuarte with age but nothing to detract from how lovely each of these pieces are. the porcelain is highly translucent and of the highest grade porcelain ~
There is a matching salt and pepper shaker set marked bavaria and that will be listed separately for sale as well....
When a piece of true antique hard paste european porcelain is purchased the porcelain itself is also of great value. ... the unique ingredients that make the hardpaste and the individual firing process of each Limoges,Bavarian and Austrian porcelain creates the most exquisite translucency whereby light can pass thru and one can often see even their fingertips....when the glaze is applied during the second firing process the glass like nature of the glaze forms and now the glaze and the object actually fuses into one piece....it is this very unique quality of the european hard paste porcelain that helps to create it's value....as the decades and centuries pass the true Limoges,Bavarian or Austrian will not become crazed...these creations are not only sought after by collectors for their art work but for the porcelain quality itself.
