This complete 14 piece hand painted fish set was made by the H & C Company, Limoges, France. The set consists of a 25" platter, 12 plates measuring 9" in diameter and a 9.5" long sauce boat. All the pieces have a lovely scalloped edge rimmed in gold. Amazingly there is very little wear on the gold. The deep platter has pierced handles with a painting of a large single fish swimming towards crashing waves or a small waterfall among rocks. The plates repeat the general design. There are 6 different types of fish depicted among the plates. The 2 piece sauce boat has an under plate with pierced handles. The boat has an elegant shape and handle. All the pieces are in excellent condition, free of chips or cracks. What a beautiful display this set would make. Imagine serving your next fish course on this set! Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1880's.
