Limoges cherub scene cabinet display plate on a gilded Lewis Straus & Sons professionally decorated ornate Coiffe porcelain mold is being offered for your consideration. It is in excellent condition and appears to have been a cabinet plate all it's life, as there are no surface marks that we can discern. The plate has Gaston's Coiffe mark 2 ( 1891-1914 ) and Gaston's Lewis Straus & Sons mark 1 ( 1890's-1920's ); a platter with this same design and mold may be viewed on pg. 279 in a 'Collector Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain' by Mary Frank Gaston, copyright 2000. The plate measures 8 1/4 inches in diameter; it displays only minimal age appropriate gold loss; no chips, no cracks, no hairlines. A true joy to behold, for the detail and coloring are magnificent; the two cherubs seem to be playing and warming themselves around a flame or fire ( this same scene may be seen on the same page referenced above of the Gaston book). A fabulous treasure to pass down to future Limoges lovers or gift for that special collector in your life ( You perhaps! ). (548-4698)
