You seldom see Limoges compotes and this one is truly a beauty! The artist has hand painted the background starting at the top of the cup portion in a creamy light green going to a soft pink, then pale blue to a deep rich green. It’s inside rim is a checkered gold gilt on a light pink ring and creamy light green background. Pink roses have been painted around the outside perimeter of the cup. He has placed the same floral motif on the inside portion of the compote, which completes this beautiful piece of artwork. . The artist ‘H.C. Frechtling’ has signed the bottom of the cup. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
