This is a very hard to find item - it is a gorgeous Limoges Ewer with a butterfly handle that was manufactured and decorated by the Martial Redon factory. This beauty is a great blank, with a nicely rounded base, long slender neck that rises up to a flower bud type spout. The butterfly handle is a very desirable feature. The base of the ewer is painted in such a dark indigo blue that it looks black. It is accented with delicate and intricate gold scroll work, raised embossed gold flower & leaves and delicate beading. The gold on the neck and the spout is thick, glossy and gorgeous. The whole effect is striking and exceptional. I have never seen another Ewer that is designed in such a way.
The ewer stands 6" tall.
It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or hairlines.
It is marked with the Martial Redon mark 1 and numbered. 1882-1890.
