Hand Painted Limoges Cache Pot Vase Artisan Scene - D'Arcy Studio - Artist Signed LM
The hand painted artwork on this cache pot is truly exceptional....such fine detailing. The scene, featuring a woman watching a young man decorating a vase, seems to be a setting out of ancient Greece or Italy. Artist signature on the front, with initials LM.
This Limoges vase bears the Guerin mark 3 (1900-1932), and the decorating mark from D'Arcy Studio in Kalamazoo, Michigan. D'Arcy Studio produced some of the finest hand painted china in the early 1900's and was a very capable competitor to the Chicago studios of Pickard, Stouffer, and the like.
This cache pot stands 9-1/4" tall and is about 7-3/8" x 4". Applied handles at the sides, and four gold ball feet add richness. The top is trimmed with a band of green and gold, and accented with raised enamel dots and scrolls. The only thing to call on this beauty is to mention that about 8 of the myriad little raised dots, or jewels, are missing (see photo). The painting is perfect, as is the gold glazing.
