Le Mieux Gold-Trimmed, Harem/Cherub Scene Vase
$38.00--PRICE REDUCED, 4-9-12
Le Mieux Vase with Nude scene. Stands approx. 9 ¾” tall, and is about 5 ½” diameter at the shoulder. The primary color is an ivory/white and has an all-over pattern of 24K gold scrollwork and flowers, and has gold rings at the top, the bottom, and at the base of the neck. The scene in the oval is of what appears to be 3 Harem ladies? They are mostly clad, with just a bit of suggestiveness in the clothes. They are being confronted with what appears to be a nude cherub, or fairy. There is no noticeable wear to gold or picture, and is damage free with the exception of what appears to be a minor glaze crack about 4” long down the side about 3 ½” to the left of the picture. I believe it may go thru to the inside so may leak if used with water, but will be a beautiful display piece never the less. It is not at all obvious, but can be found. There are also a few factory glaze pops. This item will also be on display at Lincoln Antique Mall, Lincoln Mo. So please check with me regarding availability if interested.
