If you like muted colors you will love this plate. The artist has used a scalloped plate that has raised relief edging. He has painted the rim with beautiful coin gold and has added some gold fleurs-de-lis staggering them around the rim. The background of this piece is a mixture of soft green, gold, yellow and cream. Upon the background he has painted poppies with yellow and white petals and green centers on long wispy stems. He has painted a lot of muted leaves and several other flowers in the background colors giving an impression they are in the shadows. This beauty is signed on the front by professional French Studio artist “J. Morseys”. He was a listed French porcelain artist, who is referenced and featured in current Limoges book by Mary Gaston's 'Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain', 3rd Edition. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
