Antique Limoges Hand-Painted Cabinet Dessert Plate Roses Gilt Trim

Limoges Hand-painted Dessert Plate with gilt edging. Painted with great care around the turn of the century most likely by an American "china painter". China painting reached its height of popularity in the early 1900's. Women took china painting classes and decorated "blanks" (or Limoges shipped undecorated). There were clubs and societies also where they could gather together and paint china for their own homes.

The rose plate is painted with coral pink wild roses in various states of blooming. Legend has it that Roman dining room ceilings were decorated with roses, this was a reminder to guests that they should keep secret what had been said during dinner. The term, Sub rosa, under the rose, means "confidentially."

This plate bears the Limoges France Banner Mark #2, used after 1891.

Measurements; The plate measures 7 inches and has a 1/4 inch gilt border.

Layaway is available on this item.

Ref #066-0207

Condition Report; In very good condition with just a bit of wear to the gilt

Item ID: 2013030
