Beautiful antique and highly decorative Sevres porcelain plate with cherubs. One is playing a flute and the other has a bow and arrow. It has hand decoration, transfers and gilt decoration. At the center of the plate is the crown of France above entwined L and P. This is the cypher of Louis-Philippe (1830-1848), the last king of France and it is flanked by two cherubs. The plate is signed by the artist. Looks like Debricy. The rim is pink and the outer scalloped rim sports a continuous gold ivy or grape tendril. The Tuileries (roughly translates as Tulip Garden) was the Paris residence of the kings of France. It was burned and razed to the ground in 1870. It's famous gardens remain at the west end of the Louvre complex in central Paris.
