A closely matched pair of medium Continental, probably French, Sevres, late 18th or early 19th century covered dishes with under trays that I just bought today.

There is some light staining in small areas and paint covering an imperfection at the center bottom of one under-plate. H. 6″, d. 8″ overall, plate. $345 the pair.
Above is a rare group of Worcester porcelain, all made in the late 18th century. Sometimes referred to as “Dr. Wall” type, it was later made under other owners including Davenport, Flight, and Barr.
