Jean Pouyat Antique Limoges Gilded Medallion Side Plates Set of 6
Product Description And Additional Pictures
The superb clay deposits in the Limoges region of France gave rise to a bustling and productive porcelain industry. Many fine porcelain manufacturers and decorating studios produced a wealth of beautiful dinnerware which have not only withstood the test of time, but which also continues to set the standard in fine dinnerware!
We have six matching white and gold Limoges medallion plates 6-1/4" in diameter produced by the french manufacturer Jean Pouyat. These lovely plates have a Neoclassic symmetrical scalloped rim of etched and stamped gilding 1/2" in width -- quite large given the size of the plates -- with a gold medallion in the plate's center. These plates are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or significant abrasions, and very little gold loss to the border and only light gold loss to the inner medallions. There are three backstamps on these plates: (1) the green JPL stamp; (2) the J Pouyat Limoges stamp with the green wreath and pink bow (both backstamps were used by the Pouyat factory from 1906 to 1932); and (3) an additional backstamp which reads: 'J McD. & S. Co.' This backstamp belonged to a prominent Boston retailer and distributor of fine porcelain obtained from a large number of domestic and foreign manufacturers. Our photographs taken of the J Pouyat plates show the featured plates alone, and also shows them paired as bread or side plates with our beautiful Syracuse red and gold dinner plates, as well as with other vintage or antique items of porcelain and crystal. We hope that our viewers will find our table settings helpful in demonstrating how antique, vintage and even modern items can be merged to create an exceptional modern tabletop. Of course, many of the items shown with our white and gold Pouyat plates are also for sale and are featured on this website.
Please note, this sale is for the six Jean Pouyat white and gold bread/side plates only.
