Item Description:

This is a very rare and gorgeous set!
It has been delicately hand painted with colorful tea roses and gilded scrollwork by the artist, "Virginia Johnston" in 1898 as signed on several of the pieces.
The set includes: a candlestick holder, a blotter, a stamp tray, a 2-piece ink well, a paper weight, a pen holder, and a calling card holder.
They are marked with the Tressemann and Vogt Limoges France mark (consistent with the artist's date).
The set is in wonderful condition considering it's age and the number of pieces! There is very minor gild wear here and there. The underside of ink bowl has a chip and one of the "legs" of the pen holder has been broken and at some point someone re-glued it with what appears to be rubber cement (it's stretchy). I will leave that to the new owner to decide if they would like to get it professionally repaired or if they want to re-glue it themselves.
