Four Limoges Porcelain Fish Plates.
This is a really unusual set of four vintage, Limoges porcelain, fish plates.
They are very collectible, with the illustrations showing both freshwater fish and river flower species alongside each other.
Clean and fresh, stylishly understated for elegant dining.
The plates measure 25.5cms (10") diameter and each weighs 520gms (1.14 lbs.)
There are four different designs illustrating various fish swimming in lakes/rivers. Each design has a different flower on the side, such as Water Lilies, Water Iris and Marsh Marigolds. The landscapes in the backgrounds show a variety of trees, marshlands and hills.
The colours are muted, subtle greens and blues, with hints of yellow and pink/brown. The fish are accurately represented, with fine details on their fins, tail and scales. Most impressive is the way the "water" has been "brushed" across the fish to give the impression of their movement through the river. The more you look at them, the more you see!
All in amazing condition, with no chips or cracks. They have the "Guys Porcelaine, Limoges, France" mark on the undersides.
The perfect gift for anglers and fish lovers the world over. These would make a truly original present for anyone who loves fishing and cooking fish.
