Sevres style ormolu mounted dish, the deep blue ground with central LP monogram for Louis Phillipe, within an ornate gold border, the ormolu mount with fruiting vine rim and handles, the tall legs supporting swags of flowers.
Painted LP mark and date for 1846, also inscribed marks including 44, and decorators mark including 43.
Probably Sevres porcelain and ground colour, dated 1844, decorated outside the factory mid to late 19th century, the ormolu from the same date.
References: The curious aspect of this dish is the mark: it appears to be hand painted, as is the LP monogram to the top. This is odd, as they should be printed. The porcelain appears to be Sevres, and the inscribed 44 would suggest 1844: the painters mark, however,
Condition: minor wear to the LP
