A nice 9.5" in diameter cabinet plate with a hand painted image of King Louis XVI in its center, and a gorgeous border of Sevres celeste blue accented with gold gilt floral swags. This lovely plate is marked with the interlacing L's of the Sevres factory, and there is an A in its center which dates it to 1753 or so. Since Louis XVI was born in 1754 and reigned from 1774 until his death in 1791, the mark must be false. I believe that this is a well done 19th century Sevres reproduction. Still, it is beautifully done, and it is worthy of any collection and cabinet.
Condition: there are no chips or cracks, and there is only a bit of gilt wear around the portrait of Louis XVI. The border gilt is perfectly done, and it has an almost 3D effect when looked at closely.
Thanks for looking!
