Neat Limoges Porcelain Cordial Cup ~ Hand Painted with Monk Drinking Wine ~ Artist Signed ~ Paroutaud Freres France1903-1917
This little cordial glass goes matches wonderfully with the series done by the artist “Le Pic” . The artist “Hamilton” has signed the side of this cup taking pride in his workmanship. He has painted the monk or priest in a black robe with an under garment of white. He has also added a black little round hat called a zucchetto. The monk’s cheeks appear to be a little rosy from sipping on the wine. The artist has added a nice warm golden background around the monk giving a nice contrast to this piece. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc. This is a beautiful plate and would make a great gift for that special person.
Backstamp: Crown with Coronet & Limoges Mark 1
