Description

This is a rare Vintage three legged J. Pouyat Limoges vase  of  fine porcelain P.R.C.  It is pre-owned or used but still in excellent condition  with no chips,  cracks nor scratches. There is minimal fading of the  factory paint on top of  the right handle  where the gold is less pronounced, with similar deficit on  the left handle; but does not diminish the craftsmanship nor the rare artistry involved.

The design is part transfer and part hand painted of Sappho with her lyre and another female friend ? Sappho is one of the few great women poets from antiquity and also a great lyric poet where most of her poems were meant to be sung to the accompaniment of a lyre. She was born on the island of Lesbos in 615 BC and died around 550 BC. The vase stands about 8.5″ tall and is about 7″ across.

The vase stands about 8.5″ tall and about 7″ across.
