Antique French Paris Porcelain Dishes a Set of Four, Early 19th Century
Four antique French dishes hand painted by the Feuillet Atelier. Made circa 1830, the dishes are painted in the style of 18th-century Sevres. In the center of each dish is a loose bouquet of flowers painted on a white ground. The border is painted in a deep French green (fond vert) enhanced by bouquets of flowers and lavish gilding.
In the era from 1830-1850 the French aristocracy preferred flowers such as the hollyhock, snapdragon, poppy, mint, and nasturtium as well as traditional flowers such as roses, tulips, and peonies. Feuillet was one of the best decorators in the Restoration Period turning out flowers of dazzling craftsmanship. By 1817 he was in business at 18 Rue de la Paix and had been specially appointed to the Prince de Condé and the Duc de Bourbon. He was cited as the specially appointed supplier to the aristocracy.
