      It's not made in China, but France.
      There is a good article here on CW with information about the region.

      Oh OK....lol...Thankyou!
    3. rjkinkent, 5 years ago
      Actually Newcombe67, you were correct. It is a modern fake labelled to suggest it is antique china (porcelain) made in the Limoges region of France, when it is actually Made in China in a style resembling Limoges pieces. These same vases are also passed off as RS Prussia at times, or failing that, Nippon. An all-purpose fake.
    4. rjkinkent, 5 years ago
      I've just now posted a picture of a pair of vases identical in shape to yours, but marked with a fake RS Prussia mark.

      I could not find an inscription to match so it doesn't surprise me at all rj...Thankyou....Unfortunately alot of antique dealers aren't aware either...my daughter bought this for me in QLD at an antique store...so it is of sentimental value to me regardless. Cheers

      Probably made to look like the older george and martha washington lamps which were quite popular in the 1940's to 50's. Yours has lost a lot of its gold applications which comes off with washing. Have seen hundreds of examples of the washington lamps at the antique sales, made to look like sevres china, but they have applied transfer pictures instead of the old variety of Sevres handpainted pictures which were painted then fired.

      Thanks Phil...yes it is a transfer on close inspection...the gold flowers etc are definately hand painted but there is cross hatch on courting couple

      We all learn here on CW, and I apologise for jumping to conclusions.
      Thanks for the info newcombe and Phil.

      They probably could do a better job of the transfers from when yours was done than the washington era. The real ones actually did layers of gold to give the gilding depth. racer you just posted a bit too fast as the old ones now are done in China, unfortunately.

      Later half of twentieth century.

      No seriously..that's ok...I'd rather learn and that's why I posted it..It's worth much more to me..money means nothing.... because my Daughter bought it as a gift
      ...Unfortunately she paid quite a bit for this which saddens me...you live you learn
