We’re offering this brilliantly colored fish plate decorated by Klingenberg, Limoges. It features a naturalistic green fish swimming in a background of muted red-orange, lavender and green enhanced with streaks of gold enamel. Golden vines hang over the scene and lovely water flowers of magenta 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).
The plate is in excellent condition. There are some spots of paint loss, and a nick into the porcelain on one gold vine strand. For this reason we have lowered the price.
We have two other plates in this series which you might want to look at as well.
