This hand painted fish set is a work of art! Each plate is slightly different, as the fish are traveling in different directions. Vibrant purple orchids decorate the corner of each plate and with a thick gold border around the perimeter. The gold in fact is in excellent condition and minimal to no loss. My photos have not been retouched or altered an anyway.I used daylight lighting so I would capture the variation of the green background. With the exception of 1 plate, all are signed by the artist Lancy. Each plate is marked on the bottom. As follows: Limoges / Limoges Star Strawbridge & Clothier (A department store located in the northeastern US and founded in 1868) Set Includes: 12 Plates 9 1/2" 1 Serving Platter 24" long x 10 1/2 wide 1 Gravy Boat & Liner. I believe the liner to the gravy boat may not belong to this set. Although it is marked Limoges, Strawbridge & Clothier it has a crown logo. This information can be obtained through your local government.
