Antique Limoges Plate with very heavy gilt decoration on a yellow background. The plate measures approximately 8 1/4" and is marked twice on the back with Elite Limoges Marks. Both the white ware and decorating marks were used between 1900 and 1914. References for these marks were found on pages 32 and 33 of the Collector's Encyclopedia Of Limoges Porcelain, Third Edition, by Mary Frank Gaston.
If you like the look of pairing mismatched china for use or display, this is a wonderful and versatile piece. I've included a photographed paired with a teacup and saucer.
Very nice antique condition. One small underside chip on the base of the plate which does not show from the front. The last photograph has an arrow marking the spot. No crazing, no staining. No loss of gold on the front, very little loss on the edges where you would expect to see loss. There are a few marks/scratches in the gold from handling which is to be expected for a plate of this age.
