Beautiful Limoges hand painted women's spittoon / cuspidor. This dish is gives the appearance of an open drawstring purse, pouch or handkerchief bundle tied with gold cord. It has been masterfully decorated on one side with hand painted white and purple violet flowers nestled with in green leaves and a mottled purple background on the other. What makes this so unique is the artist has chosen an orange and white luster inside making the whole piece stand out. He painted the rope shaped handle gold and also several gold areas around the underside of the ruffled top to depict the rope on the drawstring. The artist possibly signed this piece but it is illegible. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
