Limoges antique vase or lions head handled jardiniere or planter featuring hand painted roses with matching footed plinth.
This outstanding, hand painted jardiniere bears the B & Co Limoges France mark used by Bernardaud & Co. from 1900 to 1914. This is an absolutely outstanding jardiniere set with heavy gold gilt work. The gold lion head handles on the vase and the gold paws on the plinth are positively breathtaking.
Obviously painted by an extremely talented artist, the roses appear true to life. The color palette, the composition, the shadow detailing and the depth of this painting leads me to believe that this is indeed the creation of an Old World Master.
Antique Limoges jardiniere measures 8 1/2" tall, 15" handle to handle and has a circumference at the widest of 36". The matching plinth stands another 3" tall, making the pair stand at a commanding height of 11 1/2".
Absolutely free of chips and cracks.
