midcentury french limoges bird of paradise service, set of 41
A stunning 1950s french Limoges porcelain set including 22 dinner plates, 12 “creuse” bowls, a large serving platter, two smaller serving platters, two serving plates, a serving bowl, and a soupière bowl. Although Limoges made several iterations of this bird of paradise design over the years, this rare style features a hand painted gilt-rimmed scalloped edge with a hand painted gold lace trim and floral accents. The set is in excellent condition; we sourced it from an estate in Aix-en-Provence where it had been in the same family for decades and were only used on special occasions. We say don't keep this set hidden—bring them out often and make any meal feel a bit more special.
Please note the soupière does not have a lid.
