18th Century French Porcelain Dishes Made Circa 1780 Raspberry Ground and Grisaille Decoration
Made by Clignancourt in France in the 18th century, this set of dishes is painted in the most exquisite raspberry color, decorated with gorgeous black roses in grisaille, and completed by a gilded edge and border. The raspberry pink ground with its grisaille decoration and the formal gilding around the border are uniquely French. This set would make a fabulous statement on display in the right room.
The centerpiece measures 13.75″ long x 8″ wide x 6.25″ tall
The 3 shell-shaped dishes measure 9″ long x 8″ wide x 1.5″ deep
The pair of square-shaped dishes measure 8″ x 8″ x 1.5″ deep
One pair of the oval-shaped dishes measure 10.75″ x 7.5″ x 1.25″ deep
The second pair of oval-shaped dishes measure 10″ x7″ x 1.25″ deep
Condition: Very good to excellent; all the dishes are without defects, one dish with very slight rubbing. See one of the three shell-shaped dishes (see image #10 and look closely at the inner line of gilt on the lower dish).
Clignancourt porcelain is French hard-paste porcelain. The wares were very high quality and often similar in style to those of the royal factory Sèvres Porcelain. The factory was established in Paris by the architect Pierre Deruelle in 1767. In January 1775, it was placed under the protection of Monsieur, the King’s brother, the future Louis XVIII. The porcelain was then called Porcelaine de Monsieur. The factory was transferred to Deruelle’s son-in-law in 1790, and production ceased in 1791.
