A superb figural spice dish made by Bayeux during the Langlois period around 1830. Not a piece I ahve seen before but they have different version of this sort of dish that are all amazing. I really like their style and it is unlike any other European porcelain. Here we have an Asian couple probably meant to be spice merchants sitting with a basket between them and three spice pots in front. The entire piece is heavily decorated in a Chinoiserie style with thick raised enamels meant to imitate Chinese decorations but with a distinctive French influence.
Each pot has a different design to it and the basket has some vines growing along the front and the same vine is all around the edge of the base as well. A bit of gold trim to the pots and basket. The Asian couple are both wearing a very detailed robe and he has a nice hat on his head. A superb piece that looks amazing on display!The piece is in superb condition with some wear to the gold trim, a very minor chip to a point of his hat and a hairline across the wrist of his hand on top of the basket. In the back there is an area where the colors have flaked off as shown and a firing crack to the underside only. Nothing major and the piece displays superbly! The dish is not marked but that is normal and it is unquestionably by Bayeux!
