Outstanding T & V France 1900 Set of 10 "Cobalt Blue & Gold" Ramekins & Saucers Made Especially For Burley & Co. of Chicago
Perhaps one of the finest matched Sets I have seen is this nearly pristine T & V France Set of 10 "Cobalt Blue & Gold" Ramekins & Saucers.
The Set, made especially for the largest 19th Century Chicago importer, of fine China, Burley & Co., appears to have never been used and is nearly pristine in every way. Both the Saucers and Ramekins have heavy and brilliant stenciled gold covering much of the pieces. The cobalt blue is crisp and the gold stenciling is as bright as the day it was first put on, well over 100 years ago. [Please look at all the photos.]
The Ramekins measure 1-3/8" tall, 3-1/2" wide[top] & 2" wide[bottom], while the Saucers measure 5-1/2" wide. Note the very fancy crimp style of the Ramekins, as well as fancy mold. Also note the heavy gold stenciling within each Ramekin cup.
The incredible matched Set is nearly pristine in every way with the exception of a flea nip on the underside of one saucer. The gold is exceptional and most would also call it pristine.
The Set, including each piece, displays three separate marks, the Importer's mark, put on at the factory: "DECORE POUR BURLEY & CO. CHICAGO", "T & V FRANCE", in green, and "T & V FRANCE", in deep orange.
I am guessing, since Burley & Co. was also the largest import seller to the premiere retail store in Chicago, if not in the nation, Marshall Fields, that this Set probably was sold from the store itself.
This is a premiere Set and will make a superb addition for your Limoges collection.
Please feel free to ask questions.
