Great find Lorenzo!! After the '56 revolution, a couple of the photo-journals like Life had spreads on the palace wreckage showing lots of shattered china, crystal & furniture as well as defaced paintings. To find a surviving piece of china must be quite rare. A complete 'example' set of the palace crystal was [and may still be] on display at the Bacarrat crystal museum in Paris.

The 14 July 1958 Revolution was very disturbing to me, here is an image that a friend sent me on that day.

This plate was offered to me out of a group of five totals. I passed on them but they should be coming up on auction here soon. They are very beautiful; I am just more of a Medals and Orders Guy the price asked for them was not bad, I just don’t like the fact how rare china can be reproduced.

Thank you

Lorenzo
