*RARE* LIMOGES GOLD CHURCH ALTAR VASE, BERNARDAUD & CIE, 1900-14 Description

You are offerding on thisvery large Bernardaud and Cie Limoges vase decorated in textured gold featuring symbols of the cross,specifically the French cross of Lorraine, andgrapesand wheat (eucharistic symbols). Currently, altar vases are made of brass so it is very rare to find one in porcelain. This piece was used in a church as an altaritem.I removed much candle wax and smoke remnants from the surface,suggesting it was placed near the candles on the altar. It also has some green florist's foam remaining in the bottom indicating it was used for a floral arrangement more recently.The bottom has the green B & Co, Francemark that dates thevase to the years between 1900 to 1911. There are no chips, cracks or hairlines to the vase.There are still some light smoke and wax remnants here and there (to the left of the vertical line in the cross, for example). No chips or repairs.

Dimensions: 15" high x 7" diameter

Bernardaud & Cie was established in 1900 when Leonard Bernardaud bought La Taupiniere factory on Rue Albert Thomas in Limoges. This factory had been established in 1863 by P. Guery and R. Delinieres, owned by Delinieres alone from 1879. Leonard Bernardaud and his father both had worked for Delinieres, and Leonard may have been a partner from 1895.A New York office run by the son Jacques Bernardaud was opened in 1911. Another factory was bought in 1919. Brother Michel Bernardaud was director from 1923-1949. In 1948 he installed the first effective tunnel kiln in Limoges.
