This porcelain fruit bowl was produced in France by Tressemann & Vogt Limoges in the early 20th century. The porcelain bowl was sold white ware to a studio artist to decorate. It measures 9 1/2 inches in diameter and is 4 1/4 inches high. The rim of the bowl has a slightly scalloped rim with little crimps punctuating it. The quality of the painting on this bowl is very professional with fine technique. There are realistic black raspberries and blossoms on the outside of the bowl. Inside, the color is done on a rosy shaded ground, like a sunset, giving the berries a monochrome appearance. It’s like night and day from the inside of the bowl to the outside.
Condition: Some of the high points on the gilded rim have tiny spots of wear. It is otherwise in excellent condition.
