As described by The Emporium Ltd.

Sensational circa 1860 hand-painted French armorial plate in Gien's Italian Renaissance design. Sculpture-like figures hand off torches to mythical creatures, half-man and half-beast. Dragons and phoenixes abound. Graceful scrollwork. Beautiful cobalt and ochre checkered rim borders. Marked "Gien France" with the company's first three-spire castle mark, used from 1856 through 1860.

About the Seller

The Emporium Ltd.
The Emporium Ltd.

In 1985, a New York movie executive began buying antique English and French furniture, art, crystal and porcelain. Moving to Los Angeles, she added California pottery and Asian porcelain. The Emporium Ltd. was born out of that first collection. She still buys only what she would want in her own home. Her philosophy is simple: "Always buy a piece you love. You'll find a place for it. But if you didn't love it at full price, don't buy it on sale. It won't withstand the test of time."
