Set of 10 Louis-Philippe Style Plates
A Set of French Entrée Plates having a celeste blue border with Cherubs and the gilded "LP" monogram in the centre. Sèvres porcelain blanks c. 1847 with later decoration.
These lovely plates come from a large number of undecorated Sèvres pieces bearing Louis Philippe's stamp, all of which needed to be hastily liquidated after he was deposed in the Revolution of 1848. Too fine to be destroyed, it appears that they were sold to various porcelain painters workshops in Paris, who likely held on to them for several decades until the revolution was forgotten and it became acceptable to decorate them in Louis Philippe's style and sell them to the public.
