Magnificent T&V Limoges porcelain jardiniere, hand painted in the Aesthetic/Arts & Crafts style. Painted with pink lotus flowers and green stems all around the piece and lavishly painted with gold around the rim and base. There are molded handles on both sides, and the piece is very large, measuring 11 1/2" from handle to handle and standing 3 1/4" tall at the handles and is 4" deep. Marked Depose (Patented) and T.&V. Limoges France. Signed by the artist, J.H.M. and dated 8/1912. Excellent condition with no damage or losses and no wear to the thickly applied gold, this is an outstanding example in a rare mold.
