Antique Marked W.g.&co Guerin Limoges Mum Hand Painted Handled Large 14"3/4 Vase:
Up for sale today is this exquisite antique hand painted W. Guerin Limoges France vase.This vase is painted in a allover impressionist style flower motif picturing mums and branches in yellows,gold,gray,blue,greens,a bit of purple and magenta that fades into soft pinks.I do not believe it was painted by an amatuer but a professional it is not signed but perhaps the hand written numbers in gold "365" on the bottom of the vase are the artist number.The ornate twisted handles are especially pretty and are not done in the typical gold gilt but are painted to blend with the body color.It is in overall excellent condition with the only flaw being that on the inside rim there was a gold gilded solid band that has worn off in places and some on the rim. It is very large and slender measuring at 14"3/4 inches high by 3"7/8 inches at the rim and the base is 6"1/2 inches across.It is marked with the green Guerin mark which dates this piece from as early as 1891-1932 it also has an impressed #201 next to the mark.This piece is much prettier in person I was unable to capture its true beauty in these photos.If you have any questions please ask.Payment to be made within 3 days of sale close.
