I have for your consideration a wonderful Limoges France charger/ plate with the hand painted fruit.
It is marked by Jean Pouyat (JP) Factory, dated ca 1890 to 1932.
Ps: The Pouyat family was one of the oldest French names connected with the Limoges porcelain industry. Jean Pouyat’s grandfather had a faience factory in the 1760s at St. Yrieix. He also owned KAaolin factory in the area in the late 1700s. Jean’s father, François, operated a hard paste porcelain factory in Paris from the early 1800s until around 1840. Jean Pouyat established a company circa 1842 at Limoges. Jean died in 1849, and the business was carried on by his son. About 1883, the company became known as La Céramique. The Pouyat and William Guérin companies were joined in 1912.
