    Thrift store find, Limoges, signed but can't make out signature, dated 1894. Last name Eyears? 54434426_843204309359150_4746664050128060416_n.jpg 53567234_712480562481372_2681602770158485504_n.jpg

    That kind of signature is usually that of a hobbyist china painter, who decorated the blank.

    Looks like a hobbyist did the decorating of your wonderful candle stick. Back when women and men did hand painting on ceramic pieces.

    Thank you! I was puzzled, couldn't find anything Limoges with that name.

    Very odd name. Could be Eycars, equally as unproductive in search as Eyears. Maybe a private joke on Eye-Ears?
