Museum Quality Limoges Porcelain Cabinet Plate Hand Painted with Cherubs / Putti & Doves ~ Cobalt Background~ Delinieres & Co ~ Limoges France 1879-1900
This is a beauty! Delinieres has chosen a wonderful scalloped rimmed, fluted mold to create this masterpiece on. They have applied a wonderful, wide gold sponge rim and have extended the gold onto the fluted ridges. A deep cobalt blue color has been used for the background around the rim with a white background around the center portion. Light blue intersecting lines are going through the cobalt. It gives an unique appearance that cloth has when it is tie died. Beautiful gold transfers of scroll work make a frame around the white center. The center hold beautiful artwork of two cherubs. It appears they are pushing and shoving each other in playful gesture. One cherub is holding what appears to maybe his wing which has two arrows sticking in it possibly from the other cherub??? The artwork on these mischievous two is phenomenal. They appear to be sitting on clouds with purple and white flowers scattered about. Two white doves, and their quivers near by. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
