Spectacular 1844 Sevres O. Brun Signed Portrait Plate – Madame Du Berry For Sale
Here is a beautiful Sevres, Chateau de Tuileries, Louis Philippe portrait plate on a scalloped, molded blank. It's marked on the back with the green, oval Sevres mark with S.37. in the center, indicating it was fired in 1837. There are additional Sevres decorator marks on the back, indicating that the plate was decorated in 1844. The rim has a wide pink border, which is enhanced with extensive gold. There are also three panels, or cartouches, on the outer rim that are decorated with hand painted flowers and small insects. The interior of the plate is crisp white and is decorated with a portrait of Madame Du Berry, painted by O. Brun. There is extensive gold filigree around the inner rim, and the outer edge of the plate has a heavy gold accenting. This 137-year-old plate is truly magnificent! The hard paste porcelain is delicate, thin, translucent and rings beautifully.
CONDITION: The plate is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, crazing, hairlines or repairs. The gold and paint are also in excellent condition, showing little to no wear.
SIZE: The plate measures 9 3/4 inches in diameter.
SHIPPING AND PAYMENT: All items will be shipped insured but I do not use delivery confirmation unless requested. The insurance will be included in the handling fee so if you use a postal calculation based on what you think it might weigh, then take into consideration that the additional cost is for insurance and handling. The shipping costs are estimated to the best of my ability, but if I miscalculate by a great margin, I have been known to send back a partial reimbursement for overcharges. I'm not out to gouge anyone on the shipping fees and the 'handling' fee is nominal to compensate for time, materials and trips to the post office. It will never be more than $1.00 and is often much less than that. DO NOT SEND PAYMENT IF YOU WIN MORE THAN ONE ITEM - I WILL RECALCULATE SHIPPING CHARGES FOR MULTIPLE sale WINS!!
ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL buyers: I WILL sell outside the United States as long as the buyer contacts me in advance so I can fully explain my terms and tell them approximate shipping fees. I will not accept returns from sales outside of the United States - ALL SALES WILL BE FINAL.
