ANN'S ANTIQUES
FEATURING FRANZ BISCHOFF
 
From the Collection of Ann and Carl Cline

It's our pleasure to share our collection of antique hand painted porcelain that we have collected over the last 30+ years. Most of it was purchased back when antiques were much more affordable and a good part was purchased while we were traveling around doing the china painting shows.

We spent the vast majority of the profits from our business on antiques, RV's and traveling expenses

- but, oh, what fun we had!

Hope you enjoy them.
Ann and Carl Cline

FRANZ BISCHOFF
   

FRANZ BISCHOFF
GRAPE PLATE

Franz Bischoff Grape Plate

Signed. Measures 9 1/4 inches

FRANZ BISCHOFF
PLAQUE

Franz Bischoff Plaque

This wonderful signed Bischoff plaque is a huge 18" diameter.  The lady from whom we purchased it said she paid about $100 for it in an antique shop in Oregon about 30 years ago.  She was not a china painter but just liked roses.

FRANZ BISCHOFF
JARDINIERE

Franz Bischoff Jardiniere

This signed painting of hollyhocks is on a jardiniere which is 11" high and about 12 1/2" diameter.  It has a repair on one side using the staple method that was preferred in the early 1900's.  I feel that, judging from the crack, it might have happened in the kiln.  The crack is "Y" shaped and gradually disappears and there are no missing pieces that would normally be the case if the piece was dropped or hit.  There are people who collect these old staple repaired pieces.

FRANZ BISCHOFF
VASE

Franz Bischoff Vase

This vase is signed and dated 1901.  Franz Bischoff was a great admirer of the impressionists who loved to paint water lilies and he traveled to France in the early 1900's to study with them.  This vase was, perhaps, a result of his admiration of the early impressionists.  It is 12 1/2" tall and the porcelain is marked "Belleek".

This unsigned punch bowl is almost identical to one owned by a friend that is signed Franz Aulich, so it is the general opinion that this one is also by Franz Aulich.   Measures 14 1/4" across.

CURRANT DISH
George Leykauf Rose Plate
George Leykauf Currant Dish
 

These 2 pieces were purchased at the same time because the seller refused to sell one without the other. She said she purchased them together many years ago and they have always been together. The rose plate is signed by George Leykauf but the currant dish is not signed.  Since the currants are so typical of Leykauf's work, I believe they were
painted by him.

LARGE 22" URN WITH ROSES
Limoges Urn with Roses

This huge unsigned Limoges urn is 22" tall and so shiny it was difficult to get a good photo.  The top is rather washed out from the overhead lighting but every side is so beautiful we had difficulty deciding which side to photograph.

 

ANGEL

KPM Plaque

Large plaque, marked KPM, is 13" x 8" (without the frame).
The angel watching over the two children is a famous painting and you have probably seen prints of it. The painting on this plaque is as good as it gets and is true KPM quality.

The size of these is 22" x 14" but since they have old wooden backs, we've never taken them apart to check for markings. It looks like at least one may have a signature that's mostly under the edge of the frames as there is quite an overlap
