Hi Ingrid,

Was the 'pattern' of the Limoges set, called "L'Oeillet Rose Vanniere"?

Can you describe what it looks like, for example, pink carnations, blue flowers, etc.?

How many pieces originally came in the set? Do any remain?

Was it a tea set or dinner set?

Was it for table use, a child's 'miniature' tea set, and/or for display, only?

Do you remember where you originally bought it?

Thanks for all your additional detail.

Cher

Hi there thanks for the response

 

The set is dinner & tea set. It contains

 

  • cups, saucers
  • milk jugs
  • sugar bolw with lid
  • serving dishes
  • 2 covered casserole dishes
  • large platter
  • soup bowls which are attached to the bottom plate
  • small single soup dishes with two handles at each side
  • i have nine plates left,therefore it must have been part of a twelve place, im not sure. When i was checking it out i think it is the white Vanniere which is like woven basket imbossed and the only other colour on it is dusky pink with what looks llike pink carnations. It is an adults dinner set. I bought it from a Jewellery whole saler who was a Cutler and has now closed. Hope this helps. Would you like me to send a photo?

Thanks Ingrid

Hi again Ingrid, and you're most welcome.

Thanks very much for your detailed description of your Limoges set, the pieces it contains, and a description of the pattern. I will continue to research this for you and let you know what I find. A photo would be helpful, and to upload it, click on the 'tree' icon to the left of the 'You Tube' symbol in the toolbar at the top of the answer box.

Thanks,
Cher

Hi again, Ingrid.

I'm so sorry, but I have researched this for over a day, and I cannot seem to find the pattern of the set you have, which sounds absolutely beautiful. I have found pink carnations with green stems and pink roses on other pieces, but not many 'sets' and no 'vanniere' pattern only with pink carnations, as you describe. The French name does mean 'pink carnations', by the way.

However, I have found this book which is a Price Guide for Limoges, which may be of help. You might look for it, or something similar, in your local booksellers or library in your area of the UK:

http://www.pronto.com/mpm/compare/antique-trader-limoges-price-guide-10204504456


I also found this seller of Limoges in the UK, on eBay, and perhaps you can ring them to see if they are familiar with this pattern/set, and the value:

I hope you find this information helpful, and wish you the best of luck!

Hi again, Ingrid.

Please click here to see this set on eBay. I tried to research eBay U.S. AND U.K., but U.S. sites had more. It's selling for $675. I think you could just about double that to convert to British pounds.

This is just one serving platter with pink carnations selling for $124.95:
