French Ceramic Hand Decorated Dish Commemorating France's First Constitution

$35.00

This French made dish is from the region of Limoges and has Limoges, France in green as well as décoré main (hand-decorated) by Paris Style. Thank you to Mike Wilcox of https://www.worthpoint.com/articles/blog-entry/its-in-the-marks-identifying-ceramics-and-glass who explains that this particular Limoges mark is a generic one and writes that it denotes that the piece is "White Ware." He writes, "...this plate was originally made as an undecorated “blank” and sold to other potteries or studios that would then decorate it for resale."

The date 1791 is the year when the first constitution was drawn up after the French Revolution broke out in 1789. Translated literally, "Tout est réuni" means "Everything is reunited." This represents the hope that the new constitution will bring together that which was torn asunder during the Revolution. The symbols represent various segments of the population: The wheat and rake, the farmers; the fleur de lis, the nobility; the sword, the military; and the cross, the religious.

The dish measures 4 ⅛" x 2 ¾" with a depth of ⅛". It is very shallow. Please note the variations in paint, especially along the border of the dish. This is owing to the fact it is hand-decorated and not an assembly line/ mass-produced piece.

Thank you for looking.
