With Hand Painted FISH Swimming against a GREEN & YELLOW background with GOLD on a Scalloped & Embossed Rim DESCRIPTION: This superb quality charger has a delicate hand painted large fish swimming in front of a yellow and green background. The scalloped and embossed rim is decorated with gold.CONDITION: While this charger is classified as used, we can find no chips, nicks, scratches, cracks, hairlines, or repairs. The charger is beautiful; however, upon very close inspection you can see that there is slight wear to the vivid gold color on the tips of the scalloped rim. This is very hard to find; see the photos. The charger displays beautifully and certainly is eye-catching.
DIMENSIONS: The charger has a diameter of 10 15/16" and a height of 1 1/4". The hole was factory drilled in the back for hanging. Was apparently a New York importing company with ties to both Limoges, France and Bavaria. Most Flambeau China marks carry the L. Initials as part of the mark.
The quality of painting by Flambeau was quite high and many of the famous Limoges artists' signatures such as Rene', Dubois, Luc, Levy or Andre' can be found on their wares. A French friend has suggested that this signature should be read as MAB. No examples have been found decorated by American artists (Mary Frank Gaston's Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain, 3rd edition). The white ware mark on this charger is that of Flambeau China L.Please view all pictures carefully as they are part of the description.
