C1923 PAIR French Limoges Monogrammed Dinner Plates, Acid Etched Gilding!

$250.00 the ravishing pair (HOLD all J)


This wonderful pair of monogrammed (S,J,P ?) plates is marked Pauly & Cie, Venise (Sic). Pauly and Co was a Venetian glass manufacturer. They bought in other luxury goods to sell in their smart boutiques. These plates were bought in from Limoges, the Limoges mark painted out, and the Pauly mark added, probably at the same firing as the monogramme. A very strong light still reveals the mark of Villegoureix, Noel & Co of Limoges France. That company was founded in 1922 and this mark is the pre-1924 one. Hence we can date the plates to 1922-1924.

The plates are lavishly gilded with acid etched gilt border, over a dark cobalt underglaze. 24.5cm diameter.

As well as these we have a bread plate, diameter 21cm $100  and a soup bowl, diameter 25cm, $100.
