    Maybe you can help us?
    We received from my wife's uncle a couple boxes of porcelain years ago.
    So far I counted 66 pieces..
    Plates 10", 9", 7.5", 6", 5.5" (12 each)
    1x soupières, 1x soucier, 1x "sugar", 1 "creme dish", 2 plates oval, long 10" and 15", 3 x coffee cups.
    A few plates are still factory wrapped in white paper! Some items had been wrapped in new papers dated 2010.
    All plates have a ANC.FABRIQUE ROYALE, Limoges France, additional text "INCRUSTATION VÉRITABLE DOUBLE DORURE, POLI A L'AGATE"

    How old are these dishes? My guess is they may have been purchased 1980-90? I remember them traveling to France around that time. Do these plates have a particular name? Style?
    Any good advise how to find more information about these items?

      Hi CindB, Thank you. I am glad you like them. Not my taste, but a gift is a gift.

      The pieces are not that old, you're correct dating from the 1980-2000 period when Bernadaud took over the company. The name is related to the original 18th century Limoges company, which was taken over by Serves in the 1790’s and closed a few years later. The company using their name was reestablished in 1931.
      Appear to be of very good quality being “double gold encrusted with ground agate decoration”, ( my poor French translation!)

      Hi Mary,
      Thank you for your informative comments. I agree is was most likely large volume produced, overpriced porcelain form the late 1980's. Maybe the new president will influence "China" with gold rims... ;-)
