They won many competitions and displayed at the "Crystal Palace" in Paris, which was a high honor. These plates measure 9 inches in diameter. The fine quality porcelain plates have a scalloped rim. They are both artist signed by E. Sieffert who had worked at the Sevres factory. The borders of the plates have a dentil gilded edge and the borders are decorated with the finest lacy raised gilding. The portraits are of Marie Louise, Napoleon's second wife and Duchess de la Vallierre, Napoleon's mistress. The artistry with which these plates were painted is remarkably life-like.
