~1892+~HAND~PAINTED~T & V~LIMOGES~
DESCRIPTION: is a stunning antique french Tresseman and Vogt Limoges spitoon or cuspidor made for a rough ole' lady. It is decorated with handpainted pink blossoms or wild roses, an irridescent or luster finish, and a tassel shaped handle, which is a lovely gold along with the top rim. Please email me with any questions. Thanks for looking and enjoy the colors of Spring! Woo hoo!
CONDITION: T are NO chips, cracks, or hairlines. The gold on the handle and top rim have both been professionally re-applied. If you don't like it or just want it "all-original", simply acetone it off. Other than that, t is just very slight paint wear, consistent with age. Please disregard the white spots as they are from my camera.
SIZE: It measures: 2 5/8" tall.
AUTHENTICATION: You can view the T&V France backstamp in "The Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoge Porcelain"-3rd Series, by Mary Frank Gaston, on page 293, mark # 7, and dates from 1892-1907. Ebay will no longer allow us to have any "links" to any sites which help verify which items are real and which ones are fakes. If you would still like to go to these sites, please feel free to go to my "About Me" page by clicking the "about me" icon next to my name and click on the links from t I am sorry about this inconvenience but I guess Ebay has to "protect" the sellers of reproduction junk instead of people who wish to buy geunine antique porcelain. We have a large librairy with which we research every piece of porcelain we sell so that we can guarantee you are buying a genuine item and not a reproduction with a fake mark and style coming from China. Unlike many sellers, we will not deal in these items.
