1930s and is a near-pristine PL Limoges hard paste porcelain service for first course. I used them recently with asparagus center, parma ham to the right and hollandaise sauce to the left on each plate.
A wonderful set for first course service if you are having a formal dinner. The lovely large matching platter with insert does double duty and is perfect to serve asparagus but also meats that might drain a bit. Splendid French Rococo form with gold hand applied. Hand painted with beautiful orchids The set is stunning and elegant. Measurements: PLATES DIAMETER 9 "3/8 (24 CM) HEIGHT 1 "3/8 (3.5 CM) TRAY PLATTER 13 "3/8 X 8" 1/2 (35 X 21.5 CM) HEIGHT 2 "3/8 (6 CM) CHRISTOFLE SERVING PIECE LONG 10 "1/4 (26 CM) Very good to excellent condition throughout.
I have found one plate has a small 1/8 chip to rim, otherwise the entire set is exquisitely well preserved, about 100 years old, - long to be enjoyed. Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, we offer the item based on both our description and our images. All the best, all the time! Get images that make Supersized seem small.
