This is a breath taking set of (8) 7 1/2 hand painted and individually signed exquisite Limoges plates Each scalloped edge is perfect and trimmed in gold coin, not a chip, nick, flake or repair. The roses are a soft pink, against an eggshell thin porcelain. Highly translucent and when held to the light one can see right through them. The porcelain itself is a very high end antique French Limoges porcelain dating in the 130 year old range the old world green accent colors create an extraordinary work of art. They are from a private estate I happened on a few years ago while traveling. They date from the late 1880s and bear the Limoges Klingenberg mark #6 which provides a date of 1890 to 1910it is the underglaze white ware mark in green. These are factory created and factory decorated. Klingenberg owned a porcelain factory in Limoges and he both made his own porcelain and had his own decorating studio. This particular mark is associated with the studio decorated pieces he created.
