Here’s a brilliantly colored Limoges plate featuring a handsome fish with a bright blue back swimming in a background of muted magenta, orange and green enhanced with streaks of gold enamel. Golden vines hang over the scene and lovely water flowers of pink and yellow at the front are boldly outlined in gold enamel, giving them a look of cloisonné. The flowers and the fish are done in shiny glaze while the background is matte. The scalloped edges of the plate also are trimmed with gold in a double border. The surface of the plate is lightly fluted.
The plate measures 9 ½” in diameter x 1” tall.
Marks on underside are for Klingenberg and Coiffe. The Klingenberg decorator’s mark in red, over the glaze, is Limoges over France inside a circle with AK over CD at the center (CD is Charles Dwenger). This was used from 1900-1914 (Gaston Mark #9, p. 216). The under glaze manufacturer’s mark is the Coiffe seven-pointed star with the letters of Limoges inside the points. This mark was used from 1891-1914 (Gaston Mark #2, p. 89).
This plate is in excellent condition with no damage of any kind and only a bit of light rubbing wear to the paint.
