Up for sale here is a late 1800s to early 1900s Porcelain centerpiece bowl by Sevres artist Lucot (active from about 1890 to about 1915). This bowl is mounted with bronze handles and is bolted to a bronze foot. It is completely hand painted no transferware or decals or lithographic work applied on this piece. The bowl measures about 12 3/8 inches from handle to handle by about 6 inches deep by 10 1/2 inches high.
The painting with the woman and cherub is signed "Lucot" in the lower left. We have not taken the piece apart to see if it is marked sevres or not but the bead work and decoration is very well done. The top of the bowl sits slightly off center as it appears a second anchor hole was drilled to try and attache the base to the top.
The older bolt may have broken sometime over the past 100 years or so. The top of the bowl is not tightly fastened to the foot but it is attached. There are not chips or cracks to the porcelain and the gold colored beadwork is in good shape. There are however, a few faint glaze or crazing crack lines that you can see when you angle the piece in just the right light but you don't really see them head on.Lucot is a fairly well collected Sevres artist. We don't get too many of these bowls through our store. If you collect fine hand painted porcelains, this would make a nice addition to your collection.
