Vintage French Limoges Ice Cream Dessert Plate Set Hand Painted Purple African Violets Jewels Reticulated Lattice Borders
This breathtaking, Limoges, hand painted, eight piece, dessert set consists of two, 8 inch master plates and six, 6.5 inch plates. Each features as their centerpiece, a romantic posy filled with wild, purple violets nestled in lush greenery and elegantly framed with a radiant gold, border accented with blue, enamel jewels. The master plates have a nearly 2 inch reticulated border accented with tiny, gold beads and blue "jewels" while the other plates have a highly ornate, gilded border also accented with petite, gold beads and blue jewels. Reversed on the smaller plates is a Jean Pouyat Limoges hallmark used between 1890 and 1932. The master plates bear no hallmark.
Without exception, these hand painted, beauties are in excellent condition with no damage whatsoever.
