An example of the shape used for this cider pitcher can be found in Mary Frank Gaston's book "The Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain, 3rd Edition." It is plate number 642. Although the decoration on all six pieces appears to me to be hand painted, there is no artist signature. Each piece is marked on the bottom, and using the mark on the pitcher, this set dates to between 1891 and 1932. Every piece is in extremely nice condition. The only issue I see is some wear to the handle of the pitcher, which I show in two photos. Other wise all of the gold, or guilt, is very nice. The handles on the mugs are all in beautiful condition. There are absolutely no chips, cracks, or repairs to any piece and none show any staining or discoloration. Also, notice the multi-colored pastel glaze on the inside of each piece.
