This is a beautifully had painted Limoges mug done by a very talented artist. Instead of the usual fruit motif this artist has chosen to paint a French dancing girl! She has a bouffant hair doo and rosy red checks. Her wonderful pink dress is apparently still in the swirling motion as she has come to a stop. The artist has painted a grayish pink ribbon on the dress and given her white hose and pink shoes to accessories the outfit. The background is a dark brown at the base of the mug and lightens up to a golden tan at the top. It is finished off with a gold sponge painted rim. The artist "lsa C Smith" signed the side and the bottom of this lovely and unique artwork. 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.
