Presented for sale is a stunning pair of 19th century French hand-painted plates mounted is a bronze doré frame as two-arm sconces. The plates are decorated in a pink ground with gilt encrusted floral vignettes on the border and a pastoral Boucher style scene hand painted in the center. The plates bear a spurious Sevres factory mark, probably decorated by one of the small exclusive Paris shops that decorated Sevres blanks in the style of that factory often using the same decorators from the Sevres factory.
The sconces are in excellent condition; the gilding rich and still vibrant and the painted enamels with very little wear.
