The stunning piece is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, crazing, or repairs, and there is very minimal wear to the gold gilting. This beauty features roses in a variety of pleasing pastel colors.The piece has 2 different Limoges Guerin marks, which according to my research makes this a very rare find. The factory marked the pieces that they made and then sent most of them to other companies as white blanks for decorating. The decorating house would then sometimes add their mark to the piece. This special piece has a second Guerin mark which signifies that the piece was decorated in-house.
I cannot find any other pieces that have the 2 Guerin marks. The marks date the piece to between 1890 and 1932. The approximate measurements are 9 inches high, 7 inches wide, and 4 inches from front to back. This really is a wonderful piece that would look great as a cachepot on your desk or counter.
It would also be great as a vase with flowers in it. I don't know that this show-stopper has ever been used. You can simply place it on a shelf or fireplace and marvel at its beauty!
