This stunning Limoges porcelain fish serving set was produced circa 1900 in the Limoges region of France. The set consists of a large serving platter, 10 dinner plates and a sauce boat with under plate.
The marks on the back of these pieces indicate that the porcelain was produced by Guery and Delinieres and this mark is from 1863-1975. However the second mark, the red one, dates more accurately to 1905. Each piece is adorned with a hand painted image of a fish in water with a smattering of water plants around it. All of the images are signed James and vary slightly. The rim of each piece is bordered with a deep, cobalt blue and opulent gold accents.
This complete set is in amazing condition. There are no chips, nicks or cracks at all and the decorations are clear and fresh without any real signs of wear or age, just the occasional tiny spot of gold loss around the rim. This set would make a wonderful addition to a Limoges collection, display set for a china hutch in a museum, or a fabulous wedding gift for a very special couple.
The measurements: The platter measures 24 1/2" long (yes that's two feet long!!) and 9 1/4" wide. The plates measure 9 1/8" in diameter. The sauce boat measures 8 3/4" long and 5" tall to the top of the handle. The underplate measures 9 1/2" long and 6" wide.
