Pair of French Porcelain Fruit Motif Square Dishes

France Ca. 1890

Cute and decorative. These are impressed illegibly on the back but I can make out the word Depose on one which is French for registered. They would make a nice addition if mounted on a wall in your kitchen. These were given to my sister by our mother and my sister passes them on to you.

Price

$175

Condition

Overall excellent but for two shallow chips at the upper right edge of one. It appears to have originally had a gilded edge which is gone except in the inside corners of the edge.
