The G. Demartine & Cie was operational from 1890 through the early 1900's. The company produced porcelain blanks for other decorating studios, both in Limoges and abroad, as well as their own decorating department which was called 'Avenir China'.

This lovely hand painted game plate depicts a long-tailed bird, perhaps a species of the pheasant family, in it's natural habitat. The bird has a medium brown body, grayish breast and medium blue neck, head, wing tip and tail feathers. The naturalistic background shows grasses, wild flowers and a partially barren tree is soft shades of browns, greens, blue and lavender against a light blue sky with billowing white clouds. The slightly sculptured edge is trimmed with gold. The plate measures 9" across and is stamped in green "G. D. & Cie - Limoges - Pat. Applied For". It is initialed in red by the artist "R B". It was either decorated in a professional studio or a talented artist in a home-studio environment; the quality is excellent. There are no cracks, chips, repairs or wear; near mint. #1 of 4 plates on the same blank by the same artist in my store. Priced individually, or $450 for the set of four.
