Fabulous 11 tall B & C Limoge Frace hand painted vase. Features stunning daimond and oval cutout design at top of vase with immaculate gold paint accenting it. Additionally features to gold painted two looped handles with small intricate vine designs on each handle, adding to the overall craftsmanship of this piece.The body of this vase depicts a marvelous spring nature scene, of a mother Robbin sitting watch on a flowering and blossoming cherry blossom branch, while her tiny baby chick pops its head out of the nest below. It looks as if the Robin is staring at the lovely yellow flowers painted on the upper left hand side of the vase in the distance. The other side of this fully painted vase features a beautiful display of 2 in bloom cherry blossoms, with vines creeping to the bottom. Both sides are painted on an ombre/color melt of pale/ pastel green that slowly deepens to a slightly darker muted lime green in the middle and then fades back to a lighter mint/ pastel green at the top.
Top green background then blends to the robin blue sky above, probably an artist reference to the eggs produced by this beautiful bird. Base of this stunning piece is painted robins egg blue as well--which accents the top perfectly! Entire vase is immaculately painted and very lovingly cared for and stored. I did not notice any gold paint loss at all, nor did I notice any paint loss in general--it looks very much like its in near perfect condition-- however, this is an antique estate found item there could be extremely minimal/minuscule areas that I may have missed. I do however, try to point out any flaws or imperfections that you would only find if you were looking for something wrong with the item-as such here are the only flaws I did note: there are very small bumps on the body of this vase and small indentations on the top, I believe these were created in the firing/making of this item as and such are part of the original condition.
These bumps are speckled black (please see close up of these ares)--they are so insignificant you would not notice if you weren't looking for problems, but they are there and wanted to reference them. Otherwise, I have not found any other imperfections--it is free of chips, cracks, scratches, crazing, glaze checking or breaks--really immaculate condition. They are vintage estate found and all items run the risk of having the following defects which are, but not limited to: age spots dark or light, scratches, paint loss, fading, signs of age, signs of use, signs of general wear and tear, signs of storage. These defects are assumed to be present in all items--but as stated above I try to describe all items in complete accuracy.
