Gorgeous Art Nouveau Limoges oval platter with pink rose garlands, leaf framed medallions of pink roses, and extravagant, heavy gold with molded faux double handles. This piece was likely for fish, as the Victorians served the whole fish on a platter, and a long platter was essential to the well appointed dining table. It measures 16" long and 9 1/4" wide and is very good condition with minor wear to the gold band around the inner rim of the piece and barely a hint of gold wear around the thickly painted, wide gold outer rim. Factory marked with Coiffe's star mark and Limoges France (Mark 3) used from 1891 until 1914, and overglaze exporting mark LS&S Limoges France, a mark used by Lewis Straus & Sons from the 1890's until the mid 1920's. France, circa 1900.
