Rare Signed 1917 Sherratts Hand Painted Wild Rose 36 Piece Limoges Set Gold Trim
ANTIQUE WILD ROSES SIGNED HAND PAINTED T&V LIMOGES FRANCE. 12 TRIO SETS OF CUP, SAUCER, PLATE 36 PIECES TOTAL. This beautiful set is from Adel May Knolbochs estate and is being offered by her granddaughter. It was kept in a china cabinet in the dining room of her elegant at 3505 Woodley Rd NW in Washington DC, brought out for High Tea and Easter morning breakfast as she recalls. The set was hand painted for Adel in 1917 by Sherratts Art Studio in Washington DC, a highly sought after and renowned Studio, particularly for its work decorating china with lovely floral paintings. Adel passed in 1984 in Vero Beach Florida at 99 years of age. It passed to her granddaughter upon the death of her mother in Boca Raton FL in the 1990s, and has been carefully stored by her since that time. Now downsizing, she feels it is time to pass this 100-year-old heirloom, too exquisite to keep packed in a closet, back out into the world to be cherished by someone new. This set features fabulous sprays of pink and white wild roses with leaves and vines sweeping around the perimeter of the pieces, similar in theme, but each with distinct differences. The set has an exquisite array of background colors, and the cup handles and rim of the plates & saucers are gilded with real gold as well! The salad/dessert plates measure 8 1/2 in diameter. The saucers 5 3/4"; the cups measure 3 ½" in diameter with ¾ cup liquid capacity. There are slight differences in the back markings. The cups are stamped T&V (Tressemann and Vogt) Limoges France in green and include the date of 1917. The plates are stamped Limoges France. All have Sherratts painted in gold letters. Near mint condition with no restoration. All pieces are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or paint flakes. There are a few (very few) tiny nicks and wear marks on the rims. 98 % of gold gilding intact. Most issues can be resolved faster and satisfactorily for all concerned at this stage before further actions are taken. Please wait until you receive.
