Exceptional, this gorgeous set features a large Limoges style Salt & Pepper Set with a matching Mustard Pot and gilt Spoon. 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. The porcelain is of the finest quality, unmarked as the earlier pieces often were, this was either made in France by Limoges or in Germany by one of the premier porcelain manufacturers of 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. A perfect addition for your collection, or the beginning of one. If you can bear to part with this, this set is a luxurious and very welcome gift for someone you adore, also.
