This is a delightful and very rare piece, a beautiful hand painted plate by a factory artist for Tressemanes & Vogt Limoges, France made as part of the New Palissy line which was made for import for Pickard China USA. .It is wonderfully decorated with a still life scene. The hand painting is delightful and is to the highest standards and is signed by the artist “Lefort” on the front of the plate.
The green manufacturing mark dates this piece from 1892-1907. The purple mark is the factory decorating mark.
The plate measures just over 8.5″ in diameter.
This plate is in great vintage condition. Gold trim is in great shape, no chips or cracks. For its age it is remarkable. Remember it is well over 100 years old. It will look wonderful on display as you can see from the first photo.
Gustave Vogt (1849-1937), took over the Limoges branch by 1870 and partnered with Emilien Tressemanes in the early 1880’s. In 1891 they bought two small porcelain factories in Faubourg Montjovis (Limoges) and made high quality whiteware for export to the USA. The company was commissioned in 1891 to produce a dinner service for President Harrison.
Tressemann retired in 1907 and Gustave Vogt became sole owner and changed the name to Porcelaine Gustave Vogt. In 1919 Martial Reynaud bought the company and continued using the T&V mark as well as his own Reynaud mark. Reynaud porcelain remains in business today.
