A stunning antique Limoges portrait plate! This wall plate measures 10 1/2" in diameter and is from the renowned Limoges decorating house Lazeyras, Rosenfeld & Lehman (L. R. & L.), c. 1920. It has a heavily gilded rococo border surrounding the beautifully hand painted portrait of a Breton woman. The woman wears the traditional 19th century dress of Brittany and carries baskets of oysters along the sea shore. Her calm expression is lovely. The background of the portrait shows the sea and sky along with the fishing boats for which this northwestern French province is famous. This work of art is signed by listed Limoges artist DuBois. This is fine plate, beautifully painted and ready to make a statement.
The plate is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks, some slight wear to the high points of the gilding around the bottom of the plate as shown in the photos. The foot rim of the plate has 4 holes for hanging, if desired. The hallmarks on the back show the L R L logo along with Limoges France as pictured.
