French Art Nouveau Single Limoges Porcelain Candlestick Holder

French Art Nouveau Single Limoges Porcelain Candlestick Holder


This romantic Art Nouveau candlestick holder dates to c. 1900 and is made of porcelain bone china. It is hand-painted and has an ombré design from an earthy apple green at the base to a colorless crisp white at the top rim. This style of glazing became popular just before the dawn of the 20th century, and can be found on ceramics of all kinds made between 1870-1910.

The form of the holder is sweeping, with a twisted base that emphasizes the piece’s color. The rim mimics the shape of a blooming flower, and has traces of the 22k gold that used to adorn the edges of the floral shape. Upon close inspection, there is an asymmetrical garland on the white stem of the candlestick holder, created by a raised impression made by the piece’s production mold. This accent offers a whimsical touch that can often define porcelain items of this era.
