Limoges china dates back to the late 18th century, when a fortuitous discovery of kaolin clay changed the course of the region’s history. This was an essential ingredient for making hard-paste porcelain, which is fired at remarkably high temperatures and results in a luminous finish that is ideal for decoration.

This hand painted plate features black and gold gilt butterflies on a peach lustre background. Marked "made in Limoges" on the back. We think it would be lovely mounted on a wall or used as a catch all.

Dimensions: 11" diameter
