Rare set consisting of 5 plates and 1 round dish, with contoured edge, in porcelain of the East India Company, decorated with enamels of the rose family enhanced with gold of the alliance coat of arms of the Breton families Visdelou de Bonamour * and Boschat d 'Uzel, wing decorated with busts in medallion and rich floral friezes, Qianlong period around 1765 XVIIIth century.

These plates and this dish are in good condition and are of exceptional quality. The decor and colors are of great finesse.

The coat of arms is referenced in A. Lebel's book "French and Swiss Arms on Chinese Porcelain in the 18th Century" (page 133). These are the coat of arms of the Marquis Visdelou de Bonamour and the Boschat d'Uzel family, both from Brittany. Representative on the left: Argent, with three heads of magnifying glass of sand, torn and langued Gules; Right: sand, cat passing ermines. Support: two lying wolves. This service was commissioned for François-César de Visdelou de Bonamour, lord of Liscoët. He was captain of the king and in 1782 was amputated left leg on the Duke of Burgundy in a naval ombat with the English. He was promoted Knight of St. Louis. He married in 1755 Marie-Madeleine Boschat d'Uzel, daughter of Mathurin ennobled in 1768 and Françoise Grangiens. Mathurin worked as a groomer and was one of the most important of the Quintin Royal Canvas Factory in Brittany.

a report: small sparkle on the edge of a plate, tiny égenure the back of another assitte, tiny small enamel jumps on the decorations, some enamelling defects, wear of time, well look at the photos.
