Antique Sevres Cream & Plate Provenance: Louis-Philippe King of the French
A wonderful French collector of Louis-Philippe pieces just contacted me. He very generously provided me with pictures of his collection and additional information regarding the cream offered here. Alain said that the red mark is for the private castle of Eu, near Treporte in Normandy; at this time a museum dedicated to Louis-Philippe. Alain also told me that this Sevres model is called "pot a lait raccourci". Collectors are, in my experience, often the best sources of information. Last year I found a very charming cup & saucer with a convincing set of marks for Sevres; even fooled the porcelain 'experts' at the big auction houses. But this marvelous man, a Sevres collector in Germany, helped us all to pin the piece down as a very fine reproduction made by a porcelain house in Germany that specialized in Sevres reproduction and duplication, even dried the porcelain the same way that Sevres did. Excellent reproductions can be valuable themselves of course. But the pieces offered to you here are genuine! They are Sevres and they are parts of Louis-Philippe's private service. Of course, Louis-Philippe had more than one set of porcelain.
Please see photos for dimensions and marks. And keep watching! This is one of multiple items I will be offering in coming weeks with French Royalist provenance.
