Set of Three Pierced Edge Dessert Plates

Set of Three Pierced Edge Dessert Plates


My sister's Aunt was a collector and you can see the fruits of her labor in the mismatched, yet beautifully integrated, set of three hand-painted dessert plates from French ceramic houses. They all have pierced edges in the soft red color palette, making them a set, even though they are from different companies.

Asian Water carrier: The plate depicts an Asian gentleman, in vintage attire, coming back from the river gathering water in his willow baskets. It is highly detailed in soft pink and purple colors, with nice green accents. It is marked with St. Clement France (and another word I can not decipher) on the base.

Papillon: This beautiful desert plate is from the iconic French faience company, Sarreguemines. The name of the pattern is 'papillon' (butterfly). The dessert plate depicts the wild flowers and grasses that butterflies rely upon for habitat. I believe this is a newer version with the stamp on the base that was used between 1875 and 1900.

Flower Bouquet: An Antique France Luneville Pierced Dessert Plate with a lovely rose and blue forget me not floral pattern. The rose pattern is more rare.

There are no chips or cracks,no crazing and the paint is still very well presented in all of the plates, I wonder if they were ever used?
