This set of 12 dinner plates were made in the Weil porcelain factory. I have 150 of these and some are marked by a W incised in the bottom of the plate. These plates have some letters as seen in my photos. They were retailed by Aire and Co in Paris and produced sometime between 1828 and 1833. He dies in 1828 with numerour heirs from his two marriages. His elder daughter with her husband, Benoit Leon Cohen bought the salesroom and he became the partner of his bother in law Godchaux Baruch Weil in running the new showroom. He went on to become a bailiff for the court system after joining the prestigious Cercle de Commerce in Paris. These plates belonged to the estate of Robert Weeks DeForest and his wife Emily Jonston DeForest. They came out of the attic of his home Wawapek, in Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island, New York. I have 150 pieces of this design, so please contact me if you would like more dinner plates. The Plates measure 9 across, which is the correct size for a dinner plate from the early 1800s in France. People often mistake these for luncheon or desert plates. The gilding varies on each one. One plate is labeled by Godchaux Weil. Please contact me with any requests or questions.
