Vintage HP Signed Limoges Bouillon Soup Cup Saucer: Poppies!
Nice bouillon cups and saucer, hand painted and signed by artist E.D. McCue. Soft shades of pink and green ground overlaid with sprays of poppy blossoms, buds and leafs. Heavy gold encrusted handles with gilt accents on shaped saucer and soup cup base. Condition is very good to excellent. Some minor wear/loss to the gilt as clearly shown in the photos. The piece is marked on the bottom of cup and saucer with 'Haviland France' in green underglaze. The artist's signature is on the saucer as shown in the photos. The underglaze marks on this set likely dates the piece to 1894-1931; it was used on blanks. The artist decorated the bouillon.
