Lot No. 1018

Manufacturer: ?

Description: Unusual Limoges style vase, possibly of Cincinnati origin, with decoration consisting of a dragon-horse like creature. The vase was purchased by Dr. Townley many years ago at a Zanesville auction offered by a Cincinnati company. It is possible the vase came from Cincinnati and I am sure, hoped to be an early Nichols vase, before Rookwood. It is unmarked but has many of the naive features of Mrs. Nichols work including the very strange creature pictured on the side. Height 16 inches. Excellent original condition.

Estimate: $1,000.00 - $1,500.00
