Antique 1900-1914 Limoges France Elite Work Gold Trim Cup:
This antique cup measures 3.75 inches diameter and is back stamped in red “Elite Works” “Limoges France”. The red Elite stamp dates the cup to 1900-1914.
The “Elite Works” mark comes from a New York manufacturer that set up a Limoges factory, Bawo & Dotter.
This piece came from our grandmother’s collection of fine porcelain. She mostly collected Nippon but also picked up a few other items, in particular Limoges. She was born in 1894 and collected fine porcelain until the early 1960s, often from sales. This particular piece may have been one that she got from her mother since although most of the collection was sold off, this one she kept and it survived her passing.
