Outside of loss of the gold accents and browning/hairline on the tray the rest is in Very Good antique condition.Lovely hand painted floral details. I have more photos if desired just ask. Unmarked as most of this was.
There are some numbers inscribed under the glaze on the bottom of some of the pieces. Old Paris porcelain or as the French say Vieux Paris was produced from the late 1700s to 1870s.
In the later time it was often referred to as Paste porcelain. It was highly desirable and made by many factories in Paris to compete with Limoges and Sevres.
All hand decorated many artisans used Blanks made by other companies and only did the decorating. Most of these pieces were not signed.It was very exported to the US in large quantities and is very popular in the South. Lovely, graceful, highly decorated style for your home or collection. I use standard industry quality descriptions for vintage and antique items but if you have questions please just ask. Most of my items come out of estates on Martha's Vineyard and New England. The island of Martha's Vineyard where I have lived on and off for the past 30 years is home to many old original families of sea captains and sailors so fascinating things come up when there are estate sales. Please check my other listings. Please check my other new listings over the next couple of days. I take very detailed photos and give good descriptions. Please see all pics and enlarge to see details.
