A beautiful winter woods scene is hand painted on this Limoges plate. The edge of the evergreen forest descends down to a snowy mountain in the distance. You can almost feel the cold air~~ A gold glazed rim, and white enamel accents to the trees and snowdrifts complete the scene. The plate mold is a patented design from J Pouyat, Limoges, France, dated 1906. The 9-5/8" plate has some utensil marks on the trees, which actually look like highlights. There is some gold wear to some of the high points on the gold rim. Some black specks are also present on the rim. But as you can see, these are really non-issues to how beautifully this plate displays.
