Here is a gorgeous decorated large serving plate or bowl or charger from the Pouyat Family Pottery in Limoges, France, that is beautifully decorated with various pink, purple and white roses with a wispy glaze and a gilded edge. It has quite a raised edge so you could almost call this a serving bow. Will be the talk of any dinner party. The photos do not do this justice.
It has several marks. It has a manufacturing mark from 1906, a factory decorating mark form 1891 to 1932.
The mark places dates this piece from 1893 to 1932. It was one of the oldest Limoges factories dating back to 1820. It is wonderfully decorated with vibrant colors, would brighten up any room.
Francois Pouyat also opened a small factory in Limoges in 1832, and in 1835 he bought a clayworks and porcelain workshop established in Saint-Leonard, near Limoges, in the 1820s. Jean-Baptiste enlarged the Limoges factory about 1844, when it employed 127 workers. This factory made porcelain of exceptional whiteness and even texture; the porcelain was either left white or enameled and gilded. P. Comolera, a modeller, provided designs for over 20 years.
Jean Baptiste Pouyat was succeeded by his sons Emile (1806-92), Louis (b 1809) and Leonard-Eugene (1817-76). Emil trained at Locre factory (Paris) and was head of the Limoges factory from 1849 to 1883. W. Guerin bought the Pouyat Limoges factory in 1911.
It measures 12.25″ in diameter and in 1 5/8″ high. It is in fair vintage condition, does have one small chip on the rim and a repair shown in the last photo, some pitting from age hence the discounted price. Does not look like this was used much at all. Take a look at the photos as they are part of the description, to see the incredible quality of this piece and see the condition.
