Hand painted porcelain is so beautiful no matter if done in a factory, professional decorating studio or a small home-studio environment. The overall quality is what really matters. This lovely 5 piece place setting was the product of a home-studio.
This lovely set of 5 Limoges hand painted salad/dessert plates were decorated in a small home-studio by a talented artist. Each plate has been skillfully decorated with violets, forget-me-not, wild roses, double tea roses and other varieties in a pallet of colors including purple, pink, rose, blue, apricot and light to dark greens. The blanks have a lovely embossed border design which has been gold decorated as is the edges of the plates.
The plates measure 7" across and are stamped "Elite - L - France", a mark used Bawo & Dotter on its white ware blanks, circa 1900. Four of the five plates are initialed on the base by the artist, "D C". There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
