The red rose is the ultimate symbol of romantic love and enduring passion while the light pink or pale pink rose express fun, happiness grace, gentleness, and gratitude and the yellow is for friendship. The artist "Elizabeth White" has done this perfectly with this beautiful rendition of gorgeous roses! She has chosen a beautiful Pouyat blank with elephant head handles. She has placed a red, and yellow rose, leaves and stems as the main focus on one side and pink ones of the other side. To enhance the roses she has mixed white with the colors of the roses making it appear as if the sun was shinning on the petals turning them translucent. She has added a special touch by painting wonderful buds with the roses showing the progression of its life. The immediate background around the roses is light hues of blue, pink and yellow green. The upper portion of the background has a brick red or burgundy background that has been accented with white raised enamel swirl designs, cartouches and lattice work. The long trucked elephant handles are deep burgundy with gold accents receding from the top of the heads to the end of the trunk. The inside rim and edge of this piece has been painted with wonderful coin gold. The stand that the jardinière sits on is a deep burgundy color with four paws for the feet, which have been accented with gold tying it in wonderfully with the rest of this magnificent piece. The artist has signed this piece and also has dated it `98'.
There is a star bruise on the bottom but otherwise it is in excellent condition with not chips or crazing.
We will be glad to send extra pictures upon request!!
As one of the most enduring symbols for love and appreciation, it's no surprise that roses are among the most admired and evocative of flowers and when they are done on Limoges porcelain it will last forever!!!
