Collection Six Paris Porcelain Plates Depicting Historic Buildings
Our collection of Paris porcelain chargers, each 9 inches in diameter, circa 1830s, with gilt enamel highlights, green borders and colorful bouquets of flowers and filigree, feature the hand-painted scenic views of historic buildings and places in Paris and across France, including the Pantheon, Palais de Louvre, Colonade dans le fare de Versailles, Porte St. Denis, Port de Marseille and Palais Royal. Each signed Feuillet, by the celebrated painter, Jean Pierre Feuillet (1777-1840). This Parisien decorator of porcelain is known for his wide range of subjects, including flowers, birds, historic sites and landscapes. His works are highly collectible and dozens of lots featuring his work have appeared at major auction around the world, particularly through Christie's.
Condition of each is good. There are scratches and rubbing wear, but each has clearly well caref for over the past 190 years or so. We haven't found any signs of restoration, and there are no losses.
