This is a delightful and rare piece. A hand painted charger by Alan Lanternier from Limoges, France. It is artist signed which for Lanternier pieces is not always the case. The mark dates this piece from the 1890s.It is wonderfully decorated with yellow and purple peonies accented with gold. The flower decoration is in wonderful conditon. The flowers just pop out.
The charger measures 13″ across and weighs just under 2.5lbs.
This plate is in great vintage condition. There is some wear on the gold trim to be expected and there is a very light scratch in the white section on the front if you hold it at just the right angle, a couple of tiny pits but they are not noticeable. There is a chip on the back side of the rim shown in the photo but it does not protrude to the front rim and we have discounted for that as these larger pieces can go for between $200-$300. For its age it is remarkable. Remember it is well over 100 years old.
This could be the centerpiece of anyone’s collection, brighten up any room sitting on the mantle or china cabinet.
