These ten beautiful plates are hand painted with colorful exotic birds, no two plates are alike. Each scene is framed with a 2 1/2" cobalt blue and gilt border. Old Paris porcelain, also referred to as Vieux Paris, refers to the ornately-decorated gilt porcelain created in and around Paris by more than 30 different factories from the mid-18th century through approximately 1870. The plates are 9 1/4" in diameter and each one has the number 4584 written on the underside. They are in very good antique condition with very little wear to the gilt. I have also acquired a set of covered sauce dishes and a pair of small platters in this same pattern. Please take a look at the other listings.
