PP Limoges - also known as Paroutaud Frères – produced porcelain at its factories in Limoges and La Seynie, near Limoges. In its short history (1903 to 1917) it used two white ware marks which are both represented here: the PP Limoges mark seen on the cake plate and the La Seynie mark on two of the dessert plates.
