Here we have a beautiful pair of Blakeman & Henderson (B & H) Limoges display dishes. I tested the gold with the Mizar 18 and the acid test and it came back 18kt both times. They will be sold as a set. The diameter 7 inches and the weight is 7 ounces each. These are in great shape with little signs of ware at all. The history of the limoges china was pretty much geared towards the U.S. markets in the late 1800's. These were painted by chosen artist by royalty of the times. Blakeman and Henderson were those type of artists. Haviland being the oldest of the china designers, it's exciting to have something from that time frame. I hope you find these as interesting as I do. They will make a great add on to any limoges collection.
