These are two French hand painted bowls with custom frames dating to the 19th century, circa 1841 to 1895.

The material is soft paste porcelain, a type of pottery. The maker is Leboeuf & Milliet, after merging with Montereau in Creil, France. The company had a specialty of producing ware similar to English creamware.

Each bowl has a 6” diameter, however one bowl is slightly deeper than the other bowl. With the frame, each piece is 7 1/2" by 7 3/8".

There is a hand painted bird and foliage painted inside each bowl. This factory employed artists to hand paint specific production, so it is likely the hand painting was done at the factory.

The frames are custom built for the bowls, are original, and date to the same age as the bowls.

The frame on the left has a crack at the top and the bottom. The frame on the right has a crack that does not go through the wood. The frames are really old and show a lot of handling and age wear. I don’t know what type of wood it is. Patterns are cut into the face of the frames. If you like old framed pieces, this set can be hung on the wall as it is, however the buyer should try to repair the wood cracks.

The bowl on the left has some unreadable impressed marks on the bottom. The bowl on the right has a green printed mark of a pedestal urn with the words L.M. & Cie Depose Creil Et Montereau over the impressed number 2.

The bowls show no nicks, chips or cracks. I don’t see any crazing, however this type of pottery normally shows crazing so it may be there.
