Vase of Flowers by Pierre Bonnet*
Good sized framed Limoges enamel on copper picture of a glass vase full of old fashioned roses, peonies and forget-me-nots, after the original still life painting by Albert Williams shown in our last photo.
A beautifully composed homage to the original and with very fine enamelling, as to be expected from Pierre Bonnet, a master of his craft.
Great detail to all aspects of the picture even extending to the little droplets of water clinging to a couple of the flowers.
Not easy to date accurately but probably from around 1950 or thereabouts.
There is small very slightly damaged area to the enamel in the top right corner which has a hairline crack that is not immediately noticeable and in our opinion does not detract from the attractiveness of the picture on display.
The convex copper plaque is mounted in an ornate gilt frame which measures approximately 58 X 48 cm. The visible image is around 39 cm high by 29.5 wide.
