Many china and tableware companies produce wares in Limoges, France and bear the name of the town which specializes in what is considered to be the very best in hard paste porcelain material. This set, fabricated by the TLB Company (Touze, LeMaitre y L.Blancher) is an example of the forms in “Modern Taste” that they began to manufacture just after WW1. Decorative elements were designed by Lilian Glehn-Thibaut and were featured in the 1925 Paris Exposition des Artes Decoratif as well as the 1937 Exposition Coloniale Internationale. The famous French Department Store Printemps commissioned tea, coffee and chocolate sets such as this through their art workshop “Primavera”.
Les Porcelaines TLP flourished throught the 1920s and 30s but did not survive the second World War and ceased production in 1942. In more recent times, this set was featured in the major SFO Airport Museum exhibition “Life and Style in the Age of Art Deco” and is now available for sale !
