This is a French hard paste porcelain fish set. The porcelain maker is either from the Limoges or Paris regions. The decorator is of Paris, Mansard. The date is circa 1880.

The set consists of one long fish platter with a reticulated insert. The fish platters from this time period that still have the insert are difficult to find. The plates are crescent shaped, designed to curve around the edge of the dinner plate.

The platter is 23 ½" long, 8 ¾" wide and 1 ½" deep. The insert is 18" long and 5" wide. Each plate is 9 1/8" long and 5 ½" wide.

The pattern is a transfer and borders the edges. The design is one of small wild roses, with the colors of green, yellow, red and white, on long thorny vines with gray leaves.

The edges are trimmed in gold.

There are no chips, cracks or crazing. There is a little bit of age wear to the gold trim. There are some flat glaze marks typical of the glazing process from this time period. The estate placed felt pads under the insert to protect the insert and the platter; I did not remove the felt pads.

The blue decorator mark is Mansard 34 Rue Paradis Paris. The porcelain maker is unknown, either from Limoges or Paris.
