Product Description

Pate sur Pate, literally translates as “Paste on Paste”. It was introduced by the painting department at Sevres in approximately 1849. White clay or “slip” is built up in layers giving a striking impression of depth and creating what has been referred to as a cameo-like effect. Stunning!

Markings underneath read: G & C IE, along with the numbers 97. This piece was made by Gibus & Cie. Pierre-Justin Gibus (1821-97) was a Limoges porcelain manufacturer who established Gibus & Cie in 1853, with partners Alpinien Margaine and Martial Redon. They exhibited in Paris in 1855, where they were praised for their fine and elegant pieces.
