The BEST of the BEST Outstanding Vibrant Limoges Muscle Vase bearing the underglaze mark 5 of the Jean Pouyat Factory (circa 1891). This wonderful vase is signed by the well known and listed French artist, Leona. This artist is best known for their rendition of flowers, more specifically roses.
LAYAWAY IS AVAILABLE ~ We will offer up to a 12-month layaway with a 15% down payment ~ please feel free to contact us for arrangements.
The vase measures approximately 13 1/2 tall and 8 1/2 wide. On a lovely green and tan background splashed with blue and caramel, which was Leona's favorites canvas, there is a cluster of huge pink, red and yellow roses made up of multi layers of petals. These roses are simply stunning with their deep dark centers and shading which makes them appear three dimensional. The yellow rose is particularly sweet with its touch of pink in the middle. Floating above this cluster of roses, Leona hand paints several more tea inspired roses, smaller than the others, but just every bit as special with their beauty gleaned from marvelous hues of red and yellow. The larger cluster of roses sit on a bed of fabulous green, brown and golden yellow foliage, some of which are ribbed with dark cranberry red veins. The smaller group of roses display tendrils of dark green and bluish leaves with long thorny stems. This vase is in excellent condition. There are no paint flakes or loss to the roses. There are no flea bites, chips, cracks or hairlines.
