Two Trefoil Saucers HB or AP - 19th Century (J)

Two Trefoil Saucers: Seated gentleman is 6 ¾” across each side, unsigned, clearly 19th century, (could be HB or AP). $110, plus $10 shipping. The lady is 5 ½” across each side, signed AP, so also 19th century. More delicate than her companion, both the mold and the painting. $135, plus $10 shipping.

These would each have had a cup at one time, but now make charming little serving dishes,  as they are in perfect condition. They came from the same household in Brittanyand we would love to see them stay together! $225 the pair, $15 for shipping.
