ANTIQUE 100% HAND PAINTED FLORAL T & V LIMOGES MUSH SET MINIATURE BOWL & PITCHER. This is stunningly beautiful antique set in great original condition; an elegant two (2) piece porcelain mush or breakfast set or a miniature bowl and pitcher set. It is beautifully decorated with 100% hand painted pink and magenta roses, green leaves, a colorful background and black and gold trim. The hand-painting on this set is just stunning and incredibly colorful. This set has been in my personal collection since 1993.Both pieces are signed with a green underglaze stamp that reads: T & V Limoges France. I also found an artists signature on both the pitcher and the bowl that appears to me to read C, Hahn. This is an exquisite set and very beautiful as you can see from the photos! I do my best to describe all items as accurately as possible and to the best of my ability. Some of my photos may be somewhat lighter or darker than actual to better show detail or color. However, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or with requests for additional pictures. Our store has many unique and interesting items in several different categories from 35 years of our dealing and collecting antiques and collectables. This set dates to circa 1900.
This set is in near mint original condition. Please look closely at the photos as they are an important part of my description of this item. Everything rings like a bell when I tap it with my ring and I checked each piece over carefully with a blacklight and found no evidence of damage or repair. The gold all appears to me to be in very near mint condition - see the photos. There are no chips, flea bites, cracks or hairlines to the porcelain.I will mention a very tiny and minor repair to the rim of the bowl; this is very hard to spot and probably done at the original factory as I see no evidence otherwise and the blacklight did not show anything at that spot you can barely see this at about the 2:00 clock position in the 1. Two photos of the rim of the bowl.
Anything else you may think you see is a reflection in the photos. Please keep in mind these photos may be blown up at least 8-10 times normal, so anything you see will look 8-10 times larger in the photos than it really is. Please note: if you see a dark spot in the photos it is from my camera and is not a mark on the piece. It will be either just to the right of center towards the bottom or slightly above center on the right side of the photo. The miniature pitcher is about 3.5 (19.4 cm) from the end of the handle to the tip of the spout by about 2.75 (7 cm) in diameter at the widest point and sits about 4.125 (10.5 cm) off the table at the top of the spout.
The bowl is about 4.75 (12.1 cm) in diameter at the rim and sits about 2.125 (5.4 cm) off the table at the rim. With the pitcher sitting inside the bowl the set sits about 4.5 (11.4 cm) off the table at the top of the pitcher spout.About 8.875 ounces (253 grams) for the set. On heavier items I will also offer a less expensive option, if available.
