This is quite a rarity. Through our research we were unable to locate another example of a hand vase made by the Charles Pillivuyt factory. This piece is fully glazed and the amphora is painted in a pastel green color with gold accents and handles.Also, there is a blue painted ribbon around the sleeve's cuff outlined by gold lines. The color of the hand is more like a light ivory as it contrasts slightly with the white sleeve. Base is marked with C. Underlined over & Co in green and No 13 incised. Condition: In very good preowned condition. There is one faint hairline running halfway down the amphora which does not compromise the piece as it still feels strong (see pictures #9-10). Part of this hairline is visible also from the interior of the amphora but too light to show in pictures.
Other than this hairline, there are no other cracks, chips or noted repairs. Also, there is a small separation between the amphora's pointed and base and the palm (see pictures #9-10) which is either a natural flaw from the making or part of the original design and accumulation of dust from age have darkened the gap in between. These flaws are hard to notice when the piece is on display and do not detract from this beauty.
Some minor gold loss from age to be expected but overall it is mostly intact. If there are any other minor flaws with the paint or porcelain, they are all natural from the. Approximate measurements: 7-5/8" tall, 3-3/8" base diameter. Please view all pictures and they are the main part of the description.
