This is a hard paste porcelain French Limoges vase. The maker and decorator is Camille Tharaud. The date is circa the 1920s.
There are light glares in the photos, light bouncing off of the beautiful glazed colors.
The vase is 7 ½” high, 5 ½” wide at the belly and 2 ¼” wide at the mouth.
Tharaud emulated the look of nature in the glazing techniques of some of their production and this vase is meant to emulate the look of stone. The bottom half is a mottled brown and cream. The top half is a dark blue with another overglaze of brown. The inside of the vase and the bottom are glazed white.
The green underglaze maker’s mark is “T” inside a circle with France above and Limoges below. The blue overglaze decorating mark is C Tharaud in script.
There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing.
