Antique Limoges Fish Service: 23 Pieces! A. Lanternier
Fabulous Limoges fish service comprised of 23 pieces: huge serving platter, 6 plates, 12 waste or bone dishes, a sauce boat & tray plus 2 serving plates. The serving plates are not part of the original set; but they complement the service so nicely your guests will never notice; they will simply be so impressed with how stunning this set is! Each piece, with the exception of the waste dishes, comprised of a combination of hand painted and transfer fishes. The plates each have a different fish in the center. The white ground with wide salmon colored edges and rimmed with generous thick gold. The platter, plates, waste and sauce boat with tray are all marked for Limoges A. Lanternier and include the artist's and gilder's initials. The serving plates are marked one for TV Limoges and the other for Limoges with artist's initials "MBL". And I have to say the MBL plate is completely adorable. see the 8th picture for a close up of the decoration on this plate. This is certainly the most comprehensive service I have seen. And it's gorgeous!
Condition: good to very good. there are two flaws. One of the waste dishes has a broken corner and one plate has a flake. A drop of gilt and the flake will be disappeared ;) But I leave that to my buyer to decide. Please see photos for dimensions and marks.
