This is a pair of French Limoges hard paste porcelain vases, professionally decorated and hand painted by the Limoges maker Tressemann & Vogt. The vases date to the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century, circa 1892 to 1907.

The vases are a matching pair, however one vase is slightly larger than the other, by about 1/4". The smaller vase is 11" high, 4" wide at the body, and 3" wide at the mouth.

The shape of the vase is cylindrical, with a neck and round foot.

The ground shades from pale green to pale blue to pale yellow.

The decoration is not a transfer and is hand painted at the Limoges factory. There are blue and white flowers resembling poppies, with touches of burgundy red. There are smaller yellow and white flowers. The leaves are green touched with white and the brownish red color. There is pale gray foliage. It is possible the gray background foliage is a transfer pattern; however there are differences in each spray of gray foliage. The flowers and leaves have touches of white enamel. The description is like a transfer, but if you look closely at the photos, it is obvious that the flowers and foliage are handpainted by a factory artist.

There is a band of gold leaves round the base of the neck. The rim of the mouth and the foot are trimmed in gold. There is some wear to the gold due to age.

There are no chips, cracks or crazing. One vase has a line indentation in the body of the porcelain that was painted over with a flower, and it doesn't show in a photo.

The red overglaze factory decorating mark is T.V. inside a bell with France below.
