Fantastic Huge Hand Painted Porcelain Squat vase. Measures 5” Tall x 13” wide and 40” in circumference.. I do believe this is the largest of this mold. The roses are beautiful executed throughout the piece. with colors of just about every color in the rainbow. This is a Austrian blank.Marked with the Austria Mark which . dates to around late 19th to early 20th century, also marked with the France Studio mark. Robert W. France was 36 years old when he opened his soon to be famous "France Studio" in Chicago in 1906...a China Decorating Studio that would rival in quality of work the biggest china decorating studios of the era including Pickard, Donath, Brauer, Osborne, and Stouffer. Unlike other artist of the day, Robert France did not sign his work, electing instead to mark or hand letter his hand painted creations as "France Studio"...sometimes "France" and other times "France Studio Chicago". Robert France did employ some great artist during his studio days [1906-16] including former Pickard Artists George Stahl and Harry Griffiths, as well as Elsie Biegs, who later founded the Humboldt Studio and the exceptional artist, Edward Heyn. Alan Reed, in his Pickard Collectors Book has ½ page devoted to this fine early Chicago Decorating Studio and photos of his work.
this spectacular piece would be a big addition to your very prestigious Antique Limoges Porcelain Collection.
Condition is excellent with no damage or repairs.. There is gold wear mainly along the rim associated with age.
