This is an urn made in Limoges France and was likely one of a pair. These were sold as white blanks and painted by decorating studios and home artists. A decorating studio would have added a second printed mark. Your piece has a hand painted signature of a home artist (elizabeth Gatton) that helps date the piece to 1909. This urn/vase has a current value of $125.00 us dollars.
