I wish I could tell you that these photos expressed all the charming details of this butter tub, but I cannot. Unfortunately, I could not get these pictures to show all the colors but what is showing, does exhibit this piece rather nicely. The roses are attached to brown thorny branches which trail themselves all around the tub. In addition are plenty of green and subtle gray leaves that enhance the roses. What you will not see is the minty green background tone which is covering the piece starting at the thorny branches and following down throughout the remainder of the bottom portion of the tub. No matter what I tried, I could not get this color to show, it just faded out. But in reality, all the background below the branches is a soft, lovely mint green. Please consider this detail when viewing my photos. The animated roses are a wonderful shade of pink and I do believe I see a bit of coral pink as well. The upper rim and the handles are covered with a generous layering of gold gilt, very rich in appearance and very intact, showing wee, if any, wear at all.

The T&V Limoges factory is a recognized leader amongst the Limoges companies and deservingly so. The inside of the tub, as well as the insert, are painted with a covering of subtle yet colorful iridescence, making for a glowing presentation. The back stamp on this piece, as shown below, was used between 1892 and 1917, as stated in the well known Kovel's Dictionary of marks. This French butter tub measures 5 inches in diameter tapering to 4⅛ at the bottom, 5⅝ across the handles, 2 inches tall, 2 in height at the handles, and the liner is 4 inches in diameter, which fits the interior perfectly as it should. This is an attractive and appealing French Limoges butter tub and these roses will blend splendidly with many other serving accessories, please add it to your dinnerware and enjoy serving your guest with a little French ambiance.
