This is an exquisitely painted Limoges basket that is signed by the artist, F.M. Kohler. The artist has painted very lovely clusters of roses in shades of pink, soft burgundy and yellow. The roses, their stems, leaves and buds are shown on each side of the basket and reaching towards each end. The upper rim and graceful handle are painted in thick, intact gold.
The basket stands about 3 3/4" tall, 7" across it's longest length and 4 1/8" wide.
It is in outstanding condition with no chips, cracks, hairlines or wear to the colors.
It is marked with Bernardaud mark 2, 1914 and after.
