A great last quarter 19th century Limoges France fish service featuring rich ruby ground, a highly shaped form and hand painting.
The pieces are artist signed and have beautiful orchid and full flora fauna backgrounds.
We love the vibrant color of their collars and were so happy the large fish platter and sauceboat and under liner made it through the years.
There is some slight loss mostly on the ruby which is pictured below and does not detract along with one plate with professional restoration.
The service presents very well and is in overall very good condition. The platter measures 24 inches long and 10 inches wide. The plates measure 9 and one half inches wide.
