Maison Gilles was founded in 1836 by Gille the Young (1798-1868) who was among the most notable Paris porcelain makers of the time and best known for his biscuit figures. Among many other distinguished awards, in 1855, during the reign of Napoleon III, Gille received the Legion of Honor medal and the Empress supplier certificate. In 1868 when Gille died, ownership passed to his collaborators Theodore Vion and Martial Baury who managed the porcelain factory until 1889. In very good condition with minor wear to gilt as shown. Perfect to decorate a vaisselier / dresser / china hutch in a country / farmhouse or more formal setting. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
