Wonderfully colourful birds are at the centre of each plate surrounded by birds and insects each in their individual cartouches. The borders have been heavily gilded. Two attractive examples from the great French makers. The fretted square mark can be found to the base. The pieces are in good condition with only age related signs of wear.1880, Porcelain, French.
