This sale is for a gorgeous RARE antique William Guerin, Limoges France, handpainted rose pattern cachepot/vase. It measures 9" in diameter and is 9" deep. It's in great condition, with no chips, cracks, breaks or scratches. There is also no wear to the paint, and the design has been carried over and painted on the interior of the pot as well. The reserve is very low for this type of Limoges. William Guerinwas born near Limoges, and was trained in porcelain techniques. After military service he rented a porcelain decorating workshop in the Faubourg Montjovis (Limoges) in 1836, doing export. About 1872, Guerin took over the porcelain workshop of Lebron & Cie. Then in 1877, he bought the porcelain factory that had been established by Jouhanneaud & DuBois, in Rue du Petit-Tour Limoges, and which had been bought in 1867 by the Utzschenider Company of Sarreguemines and run by Leopold DuBois. This enlarged the company produced a wide range of wares, selling a lot of whiteware and also continuing decoration. Guerin's sons, William and Andre, joined the company in 1903. In 1911 ,W. Guerin & Cie merged with the nearby Pouyat Factory, buying 3/4 of Pouyat. WWI greatly decreased output. In 1920/21, Bawo & Dotter Ltd. bought Guerin & Cie and became Guerin Pouyat Elite with Carl Bawo as technical director from 1923. The basemark featured on this cachepot is for Wm. Guerin & Co., and this mark is dated between 1891 and 1932. This gorgeous piece weighs over 5 pounds!!
