I found these 3 brown limoges china desert/bread plates that are marked Limoges China on the back. They are quite pretty. Can anyone please, share any additional information about them? Thank you very much for sharing.

“Limoges China” is not actually Limoges porcelain of France (named after the Limoges region), but a company founded in Sebring, Ohio in 1900. The idea was to replicate porcelain of the same quality as France, but that didn’t happen. After a fire and the death of their ceramics expert, the company had to change its direction and make earthenware instead. Your plates are earthenware with transfer decal decoration, which indicates they are post-1903 after the fire. Sometimes people also refer to Limoges China as “American Limoges.”

Thank you LB. Very good to know.. will add this to my notes.
