Very rare pair of plates decorated with sea shell lying on green moss, grey fround. Butterflies and insectes are hidden in the composition which makes it very alive. The plate edges are gilded with engravings of butterflies which is an important Empire symbol, reminder that the feeling of Love is fragile. Great condition.
