10 x 19th CENTURY PERIOD ANTIQUE FRENCH D & Co LIMOGES CERAMIC CHINA FISH PLATES
Here we have for your consideration a phenomenal fish set made up of 10 Individually hand-painted Plates.
The set is truly outstanding and extremely rare in these Colours.
Each Plate measures 8.2" x 8.2' Square, and each plate has the underlined D & Co mark for the famous French Porcelain maker Limoges. We are not sure of the exact year of manufacture but we can confirm for sure that they are Period, 19th Century Original examples.
They were purchased today from a private household who had cherished them in their family for a very very long time.
The pieces each have vivid teal blue glazed borders with gold/gilt overlaid enamelled foliate patterns, centred in the middle by various scenes of Fish swimming close to the fresh water river banks.
The artist has hand painted each Fish individually within a different setting.
This is a fish service set that I believe is not only rare, but the provenance and value are widely documented.
See: (The Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain, Third Edition by Mary Frank Gaston)

D & Co Mark to the base of each plate
8.2' X 8.2' Inches Square
Original in all aspects.
Beautiful Condition commensurate with age.
Two of the plates have chipped corners (See pics) and apart from these two minor imperfections each plate is excellent but for the normal minor wear to the gilding along the rims.
Other than the small chips to the two plates, as mentioned above, there are no other chips, flakes, flea bites, cracks, or hairlines.
Ready to be hung and enjoyed immediately
For any serious collector of Limoges or fish sets, this would be an acquisition that would not only appreciate over time but would command an exceptional display status.
