"Paris Porcelain" Small Oval Platter
This arrived with some matching pieces of porcelain that are French, but none of the others had this mark. I suspect it was either obtained to fill out a set, or possibly just made to match the very popular "cornflower spray" design seen so often on sets of French porcelain of the 1840 - 1860 era. I don't know the mark, but suspect it is either German or Austrian, and that Boston? is the pattern name.
Overall sprays of hand-painted flowers, gilt edge. In any event, a nice, attractive piece of nineteenth century porcelain.
Size: Approximately 13" long, 8.5" wide, 2" deep.
Condition: Slight wear to gilt edge. No chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
