This is an exquisite porcelain nappy with hand painted currants as the motif. This piece is a little large than most nappies so more goodies can be passed around! This gorgeous porcelain blank features a golden scalloped rim with raised relief floral shapes on each end. It has a beautiful golden handle shaped like branches and a flower design for your thumb to rest on. It is expertly hand painted with rusty red currants and greenery on a colorful background of sienna, and pastel colors. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Examples of this mold can be seen on pages 142-143, Third Edition of Collectors Encyclopedia of Limoges.
Backstamp: WG & Co in cartouche Limoges France Mark 3
