This is a true antique beauty in every way. It is absolutely one of the prettiest Limoges platters I have ever seen. The size is exceptionally large at 12 and 3/8 in by 19 in across. This is an extremely well made French porcelain piece which presents in excellent condition despite its great age.
It actually looks as good as of it were new. The platter bears the AK/CD mark as well as Limoges France on the underside. A Klinger had a china factory in the 1880's, and later merged with the C Dwenger china decorating studio. The two pioneers produced beautiful fine china together up until 1910 when the company closed. These pieces are quite rare as they were only produced for 20 years.This particular serving piece is no less than spectacular in its design, size, coloring and condition. On a white porcelain background, there is a lovely floral design in golden yellow with some violet, and green leaves. There is plenty of heavy gold trim all the way around, and on the sides to form handles. The weight of this platter is over 3 pounds.
I feel certain that any and all collectors of antique Limoges china would be thrilled to acquire a piece such as this. When factoring in its beauty, history, and pristine condition, it adds up to be one of the most marvelous pieces you can come by. I can assure you that it will display proudly, and be admired endlessly for a long time to come.
