Coronet Limoges is linked to porcelain ware manufactured in Europe and decorated in studios in Limoges, Paris and Germany before exportation overseas. George Borgfeldt was a New York importer of porcelain with decorating studios in Paris and Germany.
This lovely transfer decorated cabinet plate, circa 1900, features a colorful array of shaded medium pink tea roses, accented by a single white rose nestled among variegated soft green leaves against a white and soft pastel green background. The plate is further enhanced by some hand applied highlights to the floral and several sprigs of heavy gold gilt grass accents. The deeply scalloped, embossed border is decorated with brushed gold gilt. The plate measures 9 3/8" across and carries the green stamp "Limoges - star w/Limoges within - France", designating the Coiffe Limoges Company, circa 1891-1914 and the green Borgfeldt "Coronet" stamp, circa 1906-1920 on the reverse. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Lovely plate
