HISTORY/MARKS: George Borgfeldt operated a New York importing company specializing in high end decorated porcelain from Limoges, France and Bavaria, Germany. Borgfeldt established art studios in both France and Germany.The French Studio trademarked Coronet was located in Paris, but the white ware was manufactured in Limoges by various porcelain factories. Latrille Freres was founded in 1899 by the father of the Latrille brothers and was located in an old abbey which was converted to a porcelain manufacturing facility. About 1920 (after WWI), Granger bought the Mavaleix business and used a different version of the Old Abbey mark. Please view all pictures carefully as they are part of the description.
