This is a set of four, Limoges porcelain, 'game' dinner plates, dating from the 1950's.
Each plate has a gorgeous illustration, of pairs of Wild Boars, Hares, Pheasants and Ducks, surrounded by a border of leaping deer, running hare, wild boar, pheasant, flying snipe and duck. The images are amazing in their detail, with the forests and woodlands in a muted palette of subtle, autumnal tones, giving them a sophisticated, timeless quality.
They are antique white in colour with an ochre and black edge border.
In remarkable condition for their 70 year age. There are no chips or cracks, some slight wear to the motifs and the beginnings of 'hairline glaze crackle', which is to be expected with their age and use, but nothing whatsoever to detract from their beauty or functionality.
Each plate measures 24cms / 9½" diameter. They are deep, at the edges, 3cms/ 1", so that the meat can be served with sauces and dressings, without risk of spillage.
They are all clearly marked "Limcolor, Terrassson, G. Brachet" on the underside.
They would look great displayed on a wall in a hunting lodge / country manor setting.
