Antique French Ch. Pillivuyt et Cie Dinner Service for 8 Violets



Exceptional, this Antique French Ch. Pillivuyt et Cie Dinner Service for 8 was made before 1867 in Mehun-sur-Yevre, France. Founded by Jean Louis Richard Pillivuyt in 1818, Pillivuyt et Cie was known for the highest quality porcelains. Bankrupt after WWI, the company sold it’s remaining assets to a Swiss company. {The modern available Pillivuyt porcelain products have no relationship to the exquisite Ch. Pillivuyt & Cie creations produced in the 1800’s.}

This gorgeous service for eight has hand painted 24 kt. gold gilt rims and detailing, with a sweet violet floral garland dancing around the rims. Each piece has the elegant monogram of SVS. Includes 8 dinner plates, 1 stunning vegetable tureen, 1 sauceboat with under-plate, and 2 side vegetable serving dishes. In wonderful condition for its age, there is slight wear to the gilded edging, a chip on the bottom “foot” gravy boat {underneath} and a minor firing fissure on the tureen. This set contains:

  • 8 Dinner Plates 9-1/2″.
  • 1 Covered Tureen 9-3/4″ x 6-1/4″ x 6-1/2″h
  • 1 Sauceboat 10″ x 6-1/2″ x 4-1/2″.
