This stunning Antique French Hand Painted T & V Limoges Purple Violet Gilt Demitasse Cup & Saucer features purple Violets nestled in lush greenery on both the cup and saucer. A magnificent work of art meticulously hand painted on a soft ground of lavender, purple, blue, aqua, and green, all blended with great skill, and highlighted with a radiant gold. The most amazing color Robin's Egg Blue inside the cup, which makes this quite rare.
Absolutely gorgeous, a treasure to add to your Limoges porcelain collection, the cup and saucer are enhanced with black outlining and gilt paste beadwork, a favorite of the Pickard Studio. The masterfully talented artist signed "Hughson" on the bottom of the plate. Marked by the Tresseman & Vogt Limoges hallmark on the bottom of both pieces, this mark was used between 1892 and 1907.
