Customer Question
I have a handpainted antique...
I have a handpainted antique Limoges plate which is a seascape with a large three sail boat in the center and smaller, vague, grayish appearing sailboats in the distance.
The plate has a marking on the back which is rather hard to describe: two mnarrow, rectangular designs, on the outside with what appears to be rabbit ears at the top. In the center, leaning to side appears to be a design with feathers. The outside rectangles contain the word LIMOGES in one and FRANCE in the other.
Thank you.
