This is a beautiful French Limoges hard paste porcelain footed bowl. The bowl is hand painted by a listed French artist, Marsal, and signed inside the bowl. The date is circa the early 1900s.

The Limoges maker is Coiffe. The bowl was exported by Blakeman and Henderson. The artist, Marsal, painted the bowl for Blakeman and Henderson.

You can view another painted bowl by Marsal in the book “Collector’s Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain Third Edition” by Mary Frank Gaston on page 61, Plate 92. Marsal’s favorite flower to paint was chrysanthemums or mums.

The centerpiece bowl stands on four feet. It is 3 ½” high and 10” wide.

The mums are big and painted in vibrant colors. The ground is shaded in colors of burnt orange, blue and yellow. One side of the outer part of the bowl has more mums painted.

The artist’s signature is on the inside of the bowl to the right of the pink mums.

The maker’s green underglaze mark is the pointed star containing the word Limoges with Limoges above and France below.

The green overglaze exporting mark for Blakeman and Henderson is a bar containing the letters B&H over a double circle containing the words Limoges France.

There is a nick on one foot and I show this flaw in a close-up photo. There are no other chips, nicks, cracks or crazing. Wear to the gold trim on the rim and feet is negligible.
