Antique French Paris plates dating from the early 1800s and produced by P&H Choisy. P&H stand for Paillart et Hautin who managed the factory between 1824 and 1836.
Set of 5: - Place Louis XV. It was its name from 1772 to 1792 (French revolution). It is the square where Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were executed. It is now called Place de la Concorde.
- Hotel des Invalides that still exists.
- Hotel de la Grande Chancellerie which is now Grande chancellerie de l'ordre de la Légion d'honneur, rue Solférino.
-The Louvre museum
- Le jardin du Roi or the king's garden. Now the Jardin des plantes.
Various degrees of crackling, scratches and staining on the 5 plates as seen on the pictures. Some scratches are very deep as the plates seem to have been used heavily. Several small chips. These are beautiful 'snapshots' of Paris.
