Rare antique French dinner service after King Francis the First - stamped

SKU: 17188


This antique French porcelain dinner service collection is a rare model from the late 1800s featuring a salamander with a crown motif, the personal emblem of King Francis the First (1494-1547, reigned 1515-47), who is said to have visited the house where this service and this mirror last resided.
