Stunning hand painted Limoges hand painted Ocean Theme Plate with exquisite detail featuring a naturalistic ocean scene with seashells and underwater sea plants. A life-like feel with white enamel highlights on the shells and water. The gold etch work along the outer edge of the plate is exquisite- with seashells incorporated into the ornamental gold design. This amazing work of art is signed by the artist ''Dillingster" (or 'Billingster'). Clearly this artist was a master at his/her trade with a style comparable to George Leykauf- also well-known for his intricate gold scrolling and airy watercolor look on porcelain. We have several Ocean Theme pieces that are absolutely unbelievable in quality so please check out our inventory if interested.
