Antique Limoges Bridal Wreath Fruit Bowl Nappy Condition: The antique porcelain fruit bowl nappies are in very good condition. I saw no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing to the porcelain. The gold gilt around the top edge of the antique porcelain fruit bowls is in very good condition with minor wear to the gold gilt. There are a few tiny manufacturing anomalies of pin dots in the glaze within the antique fruit nappy bowls. The bottoms of the fruit bowls available for sale have some surface black rubbing marks from rubbing against a surface. The stamp on the bottom reads: Limoges Elite France and the second stamp reads: Elite Works Limoges France.

Here is some information to determine the approximate age of the antique fruit bowl nappies.

The stamp Elite France or Elite Works France was used between 1892 and 1900. From this period, 1900 to 1914, the pieces were marked Limoges, France, with a red shield showing St. Mark and the words “Elite Works” above it and “Limoges France” below it. The same mark, but in green, was used from 1920 to 1932. 400 grams SKU
