Wonderful early set of plates featuring whimsical Modes of transportation scenes by Luneville of France. The back stamp dates the plates from 1880 to 1920 and these would be closer to 1880. The off white plates feature an embossed draped boarder with green and the center black etched transportation scene. There are seven different scenes including; auto, aero, skiing, blimp and balloon. The plates are marked with the Luneville stamp as well as incised marks. They measure 8" and are in great condition for their age. 3 have very minor chips either on the rim or underside. These would make a wonderful display in a cabinet or hung on a wall.
