Exceptional Antique Hand Painted French Porcelain Purple Berries Mustard - Salt & Pepper Set. Meticulously hand painted in exquisite Lavender, Purple, Green, soft French Blue and Gold, each piece is highlighted with a rich, radiant gold. This painter was a master, each berry looks ripe and luscious, the little clusters of fruit and blossoms are gorgeous, the ground flows from soft Lavender, to Grey to lightest Blue. The artist signed each piece.
Wonderful to find a condiment set like this, in such beautiful condition. Of the finest quality, unmarked as the earlier pieces often were, this was most likely made by Limoges in the late 1800's, early 1900's. Each piece has a lovely scalloped edge, and is hand painted with bright gilt detailing.
I had new corks fitted for the bottom for you. These hand painted and artist signed beauties are in very good condition, there is some wear to the very top of the mustard spoon.
- Measure: Mustard: 3-3/4" x 4-1/4"h; Mustard Spoon: 4-7/8" long; Shakers : 3" x 5"h.
