This is an absolutely stunning LARGE 2-piece casserole bowl that is in excellent condition...no chips or cracks. It is marked on the bottom: J.P. L. France J. Pouyat Limoges and has the green wreath with red ribbon through it. I'm told this pattern comes from the late 1800s to very early 1900s. This exquiste piece has two delicate handles that are gilded with 22kt gold and the top of the casserole is 22kt gillded...wow. The pattern around the bowl and lid rim is also gold with delicate little pink roses handpainted all around the gilded ban. This piece is large...it measures about 13 inches long by about 5 inches tall and 8 1/2 inches wide. Please see photo and e-mail with any questions prior to bidding. I purchased quite a few pieces of this limoges set recently....plates, cups and saucers, berry bowls, salad or desert plates, gravy boat, serving bowl and large platter. I will be listing these soon.
