Botanical Paris Porcelain Plates, Ca 1850

France Ca. 1850

9 lovely French porcelain plates painted with fruit, flowers, and nuts decorated in Paris by the firm Boyer and Feuillet. The dark cobalt blue rims have three reserves with floral sprays surrounded by raised gold. The plates are variously marked on the back in gold “Boyer Sr de Feuillet”, “Adele Boyer” and “DT”. Feuillet was a French painter on porcelain who worked at Rue de la Paix in Paris. By the 1820’s he had a studio at this address that specialized in painting on porcelain. He was succeeded by Boyer around 1845.

Many of the Paris porcelain shops did not produce their own porcelain blanks but were decorators of Porcelain. These were probably assembled over time and not purchased originally together. Five are slightly less shallow than the other 4
