Antique French Limoges Hand Painted Plate Cherubs Artist Signed
Whimsical French plate featuring two, chubby cherubs carrying a water-filled oversized seashell down a slippery slope. This meticulously, hand painted angelic motif is framed with a gorgeous, highly ornate gilded border. It measures 7.5 inches in diameter and reversed is a Gerard, Dufraisseix and Abbot Limoges hallmark used between 1900 and 1941. Also on the back is the initial of the talented artist and a faint, handwritten date which looks like 1900. This stunning, Limoges plate is completely hand painted. Most porcelain, plates, chargers, trays, etc. featuring cherubs, the cherubs are transfers or decals. Not so with this beauty!
Without exception, this hand painted and artist signed French antique beauty is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or paint flakes.
