I am thrilled to offer for your consideration a gorgeous Limoges jardiniere together with its matching paw footed plinth/base. The jardiniere and base both bear the underglaze mark 3 of the Delinieres Factory (circa 1894). The jardiniere also is signed and dated by its artistic creator, H.V. Young, Mar 1899. The jardiniere measures 9.50" tall and 8.75" across at the mouth opening. It comes it at approximately 36.5" in circumference at its widest and soars to a height of 12.5 when it sits on its perfectly matched base.
The background color of the jardiniere is an off white porcelain that is tinged with just a touch of bluish gray. The bottom third of the jardiniere is a rolling wave of an incredible muted cocoa that is top edged in heavy gold elaborate etched flourishes. Against these lovely hues and ornate design, the artist has created a breathtaking rose filled scene of large yellow and tea colored apricot roses that twirl around the outside and peak out from between and around the gold embellished decorations. Wow. So much gold and so much contrast it brings against the sun kissed and deep sienna roses. Adding another level of contrast are the bluish green foliage and dark brown wood stems. The stand up mouth rim brings the gold all the way up to eye level with its heavy gold trim. Rarely does one find a jardiniere with its original matching plinth/base. Here, there can be no doubt that the base is indeed original to the jardiniere. The porcelain sides are the exact same cocoa. And, complimenting the tones of the jardiniere, the four paw feet are done in a fabulous sand color with gold kissing all the high points.
The jardiniere and its plinth/base are in excellent condition. I see little to no wear on the gold. There are no scuffs or scratches to the floral design. There are no chips, flakes, cracks or hairlines.
