This painting was such fun because I was able to recreate art as art.  The painting technique on this old Limoges, France pitcher is so soft and beautiful and the colors are so striking.  It belonged to my grandmother and now belongs to my mother.  She has always set it out in her kitchen in the fall during apple season and it is always a welcome site.  The bottom is stamped BM de M Limoges France so I am guessing BM de M may have been the studio that produced this type of porcelain.
